New Products: Eppendorf's epMotion; Kapa Biosystems' Library Amplification

Premium

Eppendorf's epMotion automation method for Illumina’s TruSeq Stranded Total RNA library preparation kit for next-generation sequencing is now "Illumina Qualified," meaning that Illumina's analysis of libraries prepared with this method has shown the libraries to perform comparably to those prepared manually, according to the company.


Kapa Biosystems is now including amplification primers in its Library Amplification Kit in order to streamline purchases and increase library yield. The kits are compatible with next-generation sequencing on Illumina's platforms.
