    Immune Repertoire Sequencing

    BGI provides advanced NGS based Immune Repertoire Sequencing services to amplify and sequence the immune repertoire to help researchers evaluate the diversity of immune repertoire cost-effectively and precisely.

    Immune Repertoire Sequencing Introduction

    Traditional strategies for studying the immune repertoire, which include spectratyping and Sanger sequencing,  are expensive, time-consuming and are insufficient for generating a high-resolution picture of the immune repertoire. 

    BGI’s Immune Repertoire Sequencing (IR-SEQ) service enables partners to examine the adaptive immune system with bias-controlled multiplex PCR or 5’ RACE amplification and high-throughput sequencing of T-cell and B-cell receptors.

    IR-Seq allows researchers to better understand adaptive immune-mediated diseases and supports research in to a broad range of other applications.
