New England Biolabs NEBNext UltraExpress
New England Biolabs has launched the NEBNext UltraExpress DNA and RNA Library Prep Kits for next-generation sequencing on Illumina platforms. The kits are designed to enable users to generate high-quality, high-yield RNA libraries in a single day and DNA libraries in under two hours. The kits are also suitable for a wide range of inputs (25-250 ng total RNA and 10-200 ng mechanically sheared DNA) and utilize a single protocol that uses the same adaptor concentration and PCR cycle number for all input amounts, NEB said. The workflows are automation friendly and minimize consumables waste.
