Default Colon and Lung Cancer Research Panel vs. Cancer Hotspot Panel


I plan to detect mutations from DNA derived from lung cancer FFPE sample with Ion PGM Ampliseq. I usually use Cancer Hotspot Panel v2. It works well, but sometimes I don't get a good result or not enough amount of reads to be analyzed.

I heard about this Colon and Lung Cancer Panel v2, and am thinking about using it. I know the difference is this one has less target gene (22 genes) compare to Cancer Hotspot Panel (50 genes). But besides that, is there any other difference? Can I use the same protocol? The price difference is quite big.

Please help, I'd really appreciate it.
