I have long been looking for a solution to take advantage of the rapid turnaround time of the Oxford Nanopore platform to benefit cancer patients. The VarMap™ Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Nanopore Panel uniquely enables accurate detection and quantitation of low-level mutations in less than 10 hours. I am very impressed and hope to introduce NuProbe to more researchers.

List of Mutations
|Gene||AA mutation||CDS mutation|
- Horizon Myeloid reference sample (HD829) – 15,000 haploid copies ~ 50 ng was tested using the VarMap AML panel.
- 100% concordance in variant calling.
- Summary of VarMap nanopore results for 25 clinical cancer samples (7 fresh/frozen, 18 FFPE).
- Relative to the NGS results, VarMap had a sensitivity of 100 % and a specificity of 99%.
- The numbers in quadrant display the number of loci in each group. Purple dots represent variants that passed the variant call filter. 22/23 variant calls below NGS sensitivity were confirmed by ddPCR.
Step 1: DNA Extraction
DNA is extracted from clinical samples with commercial extraction kits such as QIAamp® DNA Blood Mini Kit.
40 min (40 min hands-on)
Step 2: BDA Reaction
NuProbe’s kit reagents and clinical samples are prepared for BDA reactions.
2.5 hrs ( 30 min hands-on)
STEP 3: Adapter attachment PCR
BDA products are amplified and adapters are attached.
1.5 hrs (30 min hands-on)
STEP 4: Amplicon Assembly
Amplicons are assembled to generate high-quality long DNA for nanopore sequencing
3 hrs (30 min hands-on)
STEP 5: Nanopore Sequencing
Oxford Nanopore’s Ligation sequencing kit (SQK-LSK109) is used for library preparation for nanopore sequencing on MinION
3 hrs (2 hrs hands-on)
STEP 6: Data Analysis
NuProbe’s user-friendly analysis software analyzes demultiplexed FASTQ files to generate a Variant Analysis Report that reports all detected variants, the quality scores for the detected variants, and genomic locations.

In patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), several genes are frequently mutated, including FLT3, IDH1, IDH2, DNMT3A, KIT, and NPM1. The presence of these specific mutations can guide treatment with targeted therapies such as RYDAPT® (midostaurin), XOSPATA® (gilteritinib), TIBSOVO® (ivosidenib), and IDHIFA® (enasidenib).
The VarMap™ AML Nanopore Panel enables highly sensitive mutation detection and quantitation for AML patients. The kit uses NuProbe’s PCR-based Blocker Displacement Amplification (BDA) technology to enable the selective amplification of low abundant sequence variants (SNV and indels) in a background of wildtype DNA. Following PCR enrichment, Nanopore sequencing is applied to reveal the identity of the variants.
