NEW YORK, April 23, 2015/PRNewswire/ — Library Preparation and Target Enrichment technologies are a necessary part of the sequencer’s use in clinical applications. As the sequencer technologies become cheaper, they have been increasingly moving into more labs and new types of research projects in a virtuous cycle. The capabilities of next-generation sequencer (NGS) systems, along with the growing availability of vast amounts of annotated sequence data, have permitted life science researchers to undertake a much wider range of experiments. The diverse needs of these experiments have resulted in a high demand for library preparation and target enrichment products.

DNA and RNA sequencing are becoming more central components of life science research. In addition to their prices dropping, the technologies continue to rapidly improve and become more user-friendly. The applications of sequencing span a broad range of industries and specializations, but the focus has mostly been life science research-related. As the science becomes more established, various clinical applications have become proven, and there are certain areas such as cancer where there are expected to be rapidly growing benefits in the near future.
The NGS systems are capable of a wide range of applications, and labs have taken advantage of their flexibility. The same system is often used for five or ten distinct applications. The NGS systems also have specific constraints on the type of sample that can be loaded, with regard to fragment size, adapters, and the like. The protocols can sometimes require several steps. These factors have created a market for a large range of products catering to all of the different variations of these numerous applications.
