INVIEW Human Exome Explore

Systematic assessment of inherited genetic variation

INVIEW Human Exome Explore is a one-stop solution for next-generation sequencing of human exons.

The service offers fast, cost-efficient and accurate exome analysis based on optimized enrichment protocols, as well as use of leading sequencing platforms and streamlined BioIT pipelines.  Scientists can benefit from accurate analysis of germline mutations that are very important in studies on inherited diseases and molecular evolution.   

Typical applications for INVIEW Human Exome Explore include:

  • Research on hereditary cancer, childhood cancer, genetic disorders
  • Pharmacogenetic studies
  • Evaluation of genetic disease predisposition and risk
  • Analysis of cancer predisposition
  • Patient stratification in clinical trials
  • Evaluation of polymorphisms in the human population


Highlights INVIEW Human Exome Explore

  • Use of highly efficient protocols for coverage of hard-to-capture exons
  • Whole-exome sequencing under diagnostics standards
  • Option to apply QIAGEN’s Ingenuity Variant Analysis for biological variant interpretation

Full service package offered by INVIEW Human Exome Explore including

  • Next-generation sequencing (NGS) of human exons

Bioinformatics analysis using Ingenuity® Variant Analysis

Detection of causative variants from sequencing data

Ingenuity® Variant Analysis™ allows for rapid identification of the most relevant variants in human exome sequencing. A combination of powerful analytical tools and content from the Ingenuity® Knowledge Base™ enables:


  • Rapid variant analysis within hours
  • Variant prioritisation based on biologically relevant filter criteria
  • Variant filtering based on profound data from several cancers, kindred, proband and cohort studies


If you complement INVIEW Human Exome with QIAGEN’s Ingenuity Variant Analysis, GATC Biotech will provide you with an account and log-in data to QIAGEN’s web-based software platform. Your vcf-files are directly uploaded into this account – ready for analysis. This combination provides an integrated solution for discretely analyzing and interpreting your exome sequencing data in order to detect causal variants in sequenced human DNA. Ingenuity Variant Analysis is intended for molecular biology applications and is not intended for the diagnosis, prevention or treatment of disease.
