Rare Variant Analysis and Interpretation

Comprehensive variant analysis and interpretation for rare disease

Ready-made and integrated NGS technology provides efficient rare disease evaluation

Current tools for rare variant analysis are fragmented, often involving several different pipelines that all require separate integration efforts and maintenance schedules. This disjointed framework prevents laboratories from scaling services effectively. Today, high-throughput labs need intuitive tools for variant calling, interpretation, and reporting in a comprehensive and seamless way.

The TruSight Software Suite consolidates all these tools at your fingertips. Simplify rare variant analysis and interpretation by calling, prioritizing, and reporting on variants from one software interface. The suite is designed for high-throughput labs using whole-genome sequencing to evaluate and report on variants associated with rare genetic disease.

Rare Variant Analysis Made Easy
Simplified Variant Annotation and Prioritization

Developed with input from leaders in genome interpretation of rare disease, the TruSight Software Suite annotates variants and genes from multiple public databases, such as ClinVar, OMIM, and gnomAD. Additional options to upload custom annotations and query aggregated cases with CaseLog help you leverage institutional knowledge and learn from previous findings.

TruSight Software Suite also includes variant prioritization tools, including machine learning-based tools, to help corroborate results and sort on key variants. With intuitive interpretation and reporting options, you can filter variants via gene lists, inheritance modes, custom annotations, complex logic, and more.

Integrated Rare Variant Analysis Workflow

Save time and avoid the fragmented, multi-tool workflows common in rare variant analysis. The TruSight Software Suite supports seamless integration into an Illumina sequencing workflow, from accession to final reports. Jumpstart an automated analysis and interpretation pipeline and manage a single proband or up to five relatives within a single interface.

Secure Infrastructure for Variant Analysis

Centralizing multiple interpretation tools allows for consistent, robust compliance. TruSight Software Suite is ISO-27001 and ISO-13485 certified and complies with HIPAA (third party audited) and the principles of the GDPR. We also offer options to integrate with your lab’s single sign-on policy and other security settings.

Comprehensive, Accurate Variant Calling

The TruSight Software Suite provides rapid turnaround for rare variant analysis with automated processing and joint variant calling. Powered by the speed and precision of the DRAGEN Platform,1 the suite performs comprehensive identification for key variant types, including:

  • Small variants
  • Copy number variants
  • Structural variants
  • Mitochondrial variants
  • Repeat expansions
  • Runs of homozygosity
  • Paralogs (eg, SMN1/SMN2)

By analyzing and visualizing multiple types at one time, you can easily view compound heterozygosity across variant categories.*

*TruSight Software Suite is compatible with both whole-genome sequencing and whole-exome sequencing samples. DRAGEN supports repeat expansion calling and SMN1/2 calling with whole-genome samples using PCR-Free methods.
