Expanded Carrier Screening Clinical Research with Ion Torrent CarrierSeq ECS

Sponsored by: Thermo Fisher Scientific

Event Date & Time
Date:  January 31, 2022
Time: 6:00am (PST),  9:00am (EST)
The advent of massively parallel next‐generation DNA sequencing (NGS) technologies has provided opportunities to radically improve strategies for carrier screening research. Compared with conventional genotyping‐based carrier screening, which, due to numerous cost and technical limitations, is typically designed to detect a limited number of mutations for each disease, NGS provides increased accuracy (Grody et al. 2013). In this presentation, Bruno Coprerski, Head of IVF, will discuss the state of carrier screening research in Brazil and why he choose Ion Torrent CarrierSeq ESC for carrier screening in his clinical research lab. Mr Coprerski will discuss the challenges he faced during the implementation and validation of CarrierSeq ECS, how he overcame those challenges and what he learned during the process.


Learning Objectives
  • Discuss carrier screening and how it is used
  • Discuss expectations for NGS-based carrier screening clinical research
  • Describe best practices for implementation and validation of CarrierSeq ECS
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
