HTG EdgeSeq Immune Response Panel

Characterize immune dysfunction with the HTG EdgeSeq Immune Response Panel for targeted, high-throughput gene expression profiling

Take a comprehensive look into immune system dysfunction and autoimmune disease and treatment-induced response events.

The HTG EdgeSeq Immune Response Panel leverages the sensitivity and dynamic range of next-generation sequencing (NGS) to measure expression levels of 2,002 genes implicated in the immune response, including response to pathogens and a variety of autoimmune diseases.


This panel was designed to provide critical insight into the following applications:

  • Evaluate pathways, processes, and cell types involved with immune response to pathogen infection and autoimmune disease
  • Elucidate therapeutic mechanism of action or validate drug targets
  • Measure immunotherapy induced responses
  • Discover and validate disease- and therapeutic- specific biomarkers
  • Develop predictive signatures of drug response
Click or hover on any of the categories in the above chart to see the number of gene targets covered by the HTG EdgeSeq Autoimmune Panel

Therapeutic categories:

  • Type I interferon
  • Type II interferon
  • Innate and adaptive immune-related interleukins
  • Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)
  • Toll-like receptors
  • Immune cell signaling
  • Immune checkpoint and co-stimulatory targets
  • Other immunomodulatory agents

Disease-specific profiling:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Psoriasis
