Overview

The Viral Surveillance Panel and Illumina RNA Prep with Enrichment kit allows researchers to obtain whole-genome sequencing (WGS) data that can characterize a wide-range of viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, influenza, and poliovirus.

  • Coverage of 66 viruses identified as high-risk to public health 

  • Concurrent enrichment for RNA and DNA viruses 

  • Compatible with a range of samples, including wastewater, environmental, and post-clinical 

Target enrichment for virus detection

Target enrichment through a hybrid–capture method allows for WGS of multiple viruses, without requiring the high read depth needed for shotgun metagenomic sequencing, providing insight to viral evolution and broad viral surveillance.1 Additionally, as compared to other targeted resequencing methods, such as amplicon sequencing, hybrid–capture provides greater ability to capture, sequence and identify mutations, making it ideal for outbreak surveillance of rapidly evolving viruses.

Streamlined solution for viral applications

This comprehensive workflow integrates library preparation, target enrichment, sequencing, and data analysis, allowing researchers and public health scientists the ability to monitor multiple high-risk viruses with one panel/workflow. 


Specifications


Required products

Two complete kits are available that include the library prep, probe panel, and index adapters: 

  • VSP w ILMN RNA Prep w Enrich A (Index set A) 

  • VSP w ILMN RNA Prep w Enrich B (Index set B) 

For index set C and D, or for multiplexing, the  Viral Surveillance Panel, Illumina RNA Prep with Enrichment, and index adapters will need to be ordered separately.

Description

The Viral Surveillance Panel with the Illumina RNA Prep with Enrichment provides an optimized workflow that supports viral outbreak detection and monitoring of 66 RNA and DNA viral pathogens.

A streamlined workflow for detecting and analyzing SARS-CoV-2 and other common respiratory viruses. The agnostic design allows for widespread identification of pathogenic viruses across multiple sample types of interest. Identify respiratory infections and co-infections, detect antimicrobial resistance markers, and perform strain typing of critical pathogens (SARS-CoV-2 and Flu A/B viruses) to study viral evolution and transmission.

Read counts and viral genome coverage gains

Compared to shotgun metagenomic sequencing, where all RNA/DNA is sequenced, targeted hybrid–capture reduces unnecessary sequencing of host and nontargeted microbes.

Uniform viral genome coverage

Target enrichment probes in the Viral Surveillance Panel provide uniform coverage of whole virus genomes. Virus controls were prepared by mixing virus controls at known copy numbers with 10 ng human RNA/DNA mix. Libraries were prepared and sequenced following the Viral Surveillance Panel workflow.

 

Wastewater surveillance

Viruses detected in wastewater using Viral Surveillance Panel or shotgun sequencing.a Samples with low viral concentrations are easily detectable when using the Viral Surveillance Panel.  

a. Samples were collected by researchers at Colorado State University and purified total nucleic acids were shipped to Illumina for testing. Libraries were prepared and sequenced using 100 ng total nucleic acids
