Overview

Illumina Cell-Free DNA Prep with Enrichment is a highly sensitive library preparation solution to detect low-abundance mutations from cfDNA samples. The workflow includes unique molecular identifiers (UMIs) for error correction and reduction of false positives, enabling accurate and sensitive detection of low-frequency mutations. Illumina Cell-Free DNA Prep with Enrichment has enhanced product attributes that enable greater efficiency for the labs, such as extended shelf life to six months and advanced change notification.

Fast, flexible format

Illumina Cell-Free DNA Prep with Enrichment is compatible with user-supplied enrichment oligo nucleotides from Illumina or third-party vendors, including single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) from Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) and double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) from Twist Bioscience, for enhanced content portability. The kit accommodates 55-2000Kb (ssDNA) and 70-2000Kb(dsDNA) panel content, enabling flexible study design. Sequencing-ready libraries are prepared in ~8.5–9.5 hours, with only ~2.5-3 hours of hands-on time, enabling researchers to go from extracted cfDNA to sequencing in a single day. Recommended read length for NextSeq 550 is 2 × 149 bp. For NextSeq 2000, NovaSeq 6000, and NovaSeq X, the recommended read length is 2 × 151 bp.

High-performance library prep

Illumina Cell-Free DNA Prep with Enrichment detects low-frequency variants, including SNVs, CNVs, Indels as variants, and gene fusions. The kit identifies small variants with allele frequencies as low as 0.2% from only 20 ng cfDNA with ≥90% sensitivity.

Streamlined sample-to-insights workflow

This kit is part of an integrated workflow with option for no manual touchpoints from sequencer to insights that (1) starts with cfDNA, followed by (2) sequencing on Illumina mid- and high-throughput systems, (3) highly accurate variant calling using the DRAGEN for ILMN cfDNA Prep with Enrichment App, and (4) option for variant interpretation through automated draft research report generation using Illumina Connected Insights.
