NuGEN Releases Streamlined DNA-Seq Library Preparation Kit
12 February 2018 - - San Carlos, California-based biological science reagents provider NuGEN Technologies has launched a breakthrough DNA-Seq library system giving researchers a simplified library preparation system for Illumina sequencers, the company said.
The new system, Celero DNA-Seq, features a fast, addition-only workflow that eliminates in-process bead purifications. The system also features a breakthrough library quantitation method that saves both time and cost.
In line with NuGEN's new indexing solutions, Celero DNA-Seq will be available with both unique dual indexes to detect index hopping and metaplex barcode options to increase multiplexing.
To achieve workflow simplicity, master mixes which contain all components needed for each step are supplied in the kit, rather than assembled in-process by the researcher. When coupled with the elimination of post-ligation bead purification, a high level of reproducibility and repeatability is achieved.
Celero also NuQuant, a quantitation method that directly measures molar concentration in a library in seconds and is compatible with a wide array of fluorescent detectors and plate readers, including the Qubit.
NuGEN Technologies provides NGS and genomic sample prep products for a broad range of sample types including RNA and DNA from whole tissues, FFPE samples, single cells and liquid biopsies.
NuGEN's products offer rapid and simple workflows designed to reduce time and cost per sample. NuGEN products are used by 1000s of customers in basic research, applied markets and molecular diagnostics.
