Swift Biosciences - Transforming NGS library preparation
Swift Biosciences is an innovative biotechnology company focused on creating tools for library preparation in the DNA sequencing sciences (NGS, PCR). Their products are designed to help customers analyze challenging samples that are often associated with translational work, including circulating, cell-free DNA and formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded samples. Swift Biosciences has developed unique intellectual property in the fields of ligation, amplification, purification, and DNA repair. For example, their amplification technology was developed for use with fragmented DNA isolated from samples, such as FFPE and cfDNA, and enables the design of overlapping amplicons, offering full gene coverage. The tools developed in their efforts are directly applicable to research in agrigenomics, biotechnology, metagenomics, and the pharmaceutical industry.
- Amplicon sequencing (e.g. for oncology/liquid biopsy)
- Bisulfite sequencing
- Epigenetics & ChIP-Seq
- Circulating, cell-free DNA
- Hybridization capture sequencing
- Molecular identifiers
- Single-cell methylation sequencing
- Whole genome sequencing
- DNA sequencing library kits and panels for
- double-stranded DNA
- single-stranded DNA
- bisulfite-converted DNA
The kits are applicable across the three major NGS platforms: Illumina, Ion Torrent, and Pacific Biosciences. Swift also offers kits for the construction of targeted DNA sequencing libraries in a single tube, from minute amounts of DNA in less than 2 hours.
