Lowering NGS analysis cost at lightspeed
March 22, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies over the years have significantly decreased the cost of whole genome (WGS) and whole exome (WES) applications, such that they are considered the standard of care within multiple healthcare organizations. Arguably, the most significant NGS challenges lie within data analysis and interpretation. Various parameters such as sensitivity, specificity, cost and speed are critical for secondary analysis, while accurate, comprehensive and up-to-date content is required for reliable interpretation. These aspects are crucial, especially where rapid turnaround times are critical for improved health outcomes. There is no better example than the implementation of WES and WGS in the neonatal and pediatric intensive care units (NICU/PICU).
Join this webinar to learn about QIAGEN CLC LightSpeed, a secondary analysis software that dramatically reduces the cost and time it takes to analyze WES and WGS data and generate actionable insights.
