Bioline JetSeq DNA Library Preparation Kit

Bioline, a subsidiary of Meridian Bioscience, has launched the JetSeq DNA library preparation kit. The new kit uses highly optimized enzymes and buffers, developed in collaboration with Oxford Gene Technology, to enable the preparation of the highest quality NGS sequencing-ready, adapter-ligated DNA for Illumina's Next-Generation Sequencers. The technology uses a combination of end repair and A-tailing followed by direct ligation of the adapters, thus reducing hands-on time and making the process faster and easier to use. Additionally, the technology reduces the number of required clean-up steps, significantly improving the yield and quality of sequence-ready libraries and reducing the amount of DNA required, the company said.
