Roche has launched SeqCap EZ Reagent kits, which include the accessory, oligonucleotides, hybridization, and wash kits configured in a 24-reaction pack. Kits can also be ordered separately and include: SeqCap EZ Accessory for sequence capture experiments; SeqCap EZ HE-Oligo A, which includes oligos for 1 to 12 samples for Illumina sequencing; and SeqCap EZ HE-Oligo B, which includes oligos for 13 to 24 samples for use with Illumina sequencing systems. The kits are designed to be used with Roche's line of SeqCap EZ Library probe pools.
Bioo Scientific has launched the NextFlex 16S V4 Amplicon-Seq Kit for bacterial metagenomic studies. The kit is compatible with Illumina's HiSeq and MiSeq systems. It is designed to target the V4 region of the 16S subunit and in a single PCR amplification ligates the necessary sequencing and barcoded regions for multiplexing. The kit is available with up to 48 barcodes and additional barcodes are available on a custom basis.
