Presented at the 42nd Association of Genetic Technologists (AGT) 2017 annual meeting in St Louis, USA, this poster outlines how OGT has optimised a one-day hybridisation-based enrichment protocol for next-generation sequencing (NGS) incorporating a rapid 30 hybridisation step, with performance examples illustrating excellent uniformity of coverage in the detection of key CALR and JAK2 indels (including 52 bp deletions and 5 bp insertions) and FLT3 ITDs.


  • Hybridisation-based enrichment protocols for next-generation sequencing (NGS) generate higher quality data (e.g. enhanced coverage uniformity, more complete coverage, and more accurate assessment of insertions/deletions (indels) and internal tandem duplications (ITDs)). However, they are generally more time consuming than PCR-based enrichment approaches. 
  • We have developed a rapid (30 minute) hybridisation protocol that enables Illumina sequencer-ready libraries to be generated from purified DNA in 1-day. 
  • The aim of this study is to evaluate the new streamlined 1-day hybridisation-based NGS library preparation kit (LPK) in conjunction with four different haematological capture panels of varying sizes.
