False-positive rate in detection of variants using various methods
The performance of the HEAT-Seq Ultra Oncology HotSpot Panel is compared to similar kits to assess allele frequency detection accuracy and data quality. The HEAT-Seq panel presents a similar or improved variant detection ability, but also presents an extremely low false-positive rate. The proprietary process of removing duplicates using molecular barcoding is the core of the HEAT-Seq system that enables not only accurate variant calls but also the confident removal of process induced errors that appear as false positives.
Observed vs. Expected allele frequency detection using formalin-compromised samples: The HEAT-Seq Ultra Oncology HotSpot Panel was tested using an FFPE control sample with known mutations at between 0.9 % and 25 % frequencies. Observed allele frequencies strongly matched the known frequencies, showing the sensitivity and accuracy of this panel.
