Saphyr Whole Genome Imaging Instrument
Whole genome imaging with Saphyr® reveals what’s missing in your research. Rapidly identify genome variation like never before with the high-throughput Saphyr system.
STRUCTURAL VARIATION DISCOVERY PLATFORM
Resolve large-scale structural variations missed by next-generation sequencing (NGS) systems
Large structural variations are responsible for many diseases and conditions, including cancers and developmental disorders. Saphyr detects structural variations ranging from 500 bp to megabase pairs in length and offers assembly and discovery algorithms that far outperform sequencing-based technologies in sensitivity.
For mosaic samples or heterogeneous cancer samples, Saphyr detects all types of structural variants down to 5% Variant Allele Fraction. Saphyr provides this performance typically with a false positive rate of less than 2%. Saphyr also calls repeats and complex rearrangements.
Automation features and intelligent sample preparation simplify the process
Saphyr offers automated features that minimize hands-on time.
Requires less than 3 minutes hands-on instrument time per chip
Automatic optimization of run conditions based on sample characteristics maximizes throughput
Saphyr Chip Clip protects sample integrity and eliminates the need for instrument wash cycles between runs
