DNA library preparation

Gain a comprehensive insight into DNA

A wide range of library preparation kits is available to suit whole-genome as well as targeted sequencing requirements. Amplification-free kits allow direct sequencing of short to ultra-long fragments of native DNA, eliminating PCR bias and allowing the detection of base modifications alongside standard nucleotides. Amplification-based kits enable whole-genome sequencing from low-input amounts or low-quality DNA (e.g. FFPE).
