Sequencing and microarray solutions for identifying genomic changes in cancer

Every tumor is unique. Illumina next-generation sequencing (NGS) solutions can help you find the right approach, from single gene to comprehensive analysis, and go from insights to action.

Our TruSight Oncology 500 solution gives you pan-cancer coverage that was developed to align with key guidelines and evaluate DNA and RNA tumor biomarkers, including the immuno-oncology biomarkers tumor mutational burden (TMB) and microsatellite instability (MSI).

Limitless discovery across the oncology spectrum

Cancer Research Products and Services


Illumina products and services facilitate cancer research by enabling the identification of genomic changes such as:

  • Germline and somatic variants
  • Gene fusions
  • Copy number variants
  • RNA expression changes
  • Epigenetic alterations

Illumina cancer research products support both NGS and microarray strategies for various study designs.

Illumina offers a wide variety of sequencing and microarray products for cancer research.

Featured Products:

  • AmpliSeq for Illumina BRCA Panel – Targeted research panel investigating somatic and germline variants in BRCA1 and BRCA2.
  • AmpliSeq for Illumina Focus Panel – Targeted DNA and RNA research panel investigating 52 genes with known relevance to solid tumors.
  • AmpliSeq for Illumina Immune Response Panel – Targeted RNA expression research panel investigating 395 genes involved in tumor-immune system interactions.
  • TruSight Tumor 170 – Comprehensive panel detects single-nucleotide variants (SNVs), amplifications, and fusions that contribute to solid tumor progression.
  • TruSight Oncology 500 – Expansion of TruSight Tumor 170 content and assessment capabilities, aggregating to 523 genes, with enough genomic content to enable robust MSI and TMB evaluation
  • TruSight Oncology UMI Reagents – The TruSight Oncology UMI Reagents reduce error rates in samples to ≤0.007%, enabling the detection of low frequency variants.
  • TruSight RNA Fusion Panel – Provides comprehensive gene fusion detection in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) and other cancer research samples.
  • TruSight RNA Pan-Cancer – Targeting 1385 oncology genes for gene expression, variant and fusion detection in all RNA sample types including FFPE.
  • TruSight Tumor 15 – Focused panel to assess relevant solid tumor somatic variants in a simple, sample-to-data workflow.
