IDT xGen Monkeypox Virus Amplicon Panel
Aug 31, 2022
IDT has launched a next-generation sequencing library prep kit for monkeypox virus genotyping. The xGen Monkeypox Virus Amplicon Panel offers a single-tube workflow that takes 2.5 hours, and generates contiguous tiling of overlapping amplicons. Super amplicons enable novel variant discovery by maintaining genomic coverage even if a novel variant occurs under a primer binding site, which may disrupt a primer's ability to bind, the company noteed. The research-use-only kit is also compatible with IDT Normalase technology for normalization of NGS libraries.
