Bioline JetSeq DNA Library Preparation Kits

Meridian Bioscience subsidiary, Bioline, has launched its JetSeq DNA Library Preparation kits. The kits, developed in collaboration with Oxford Gene Technology, use pre-optimized buffers to provide maximum reaction efficiency and highest conversion rates, the company said. They also  use a combination of end repair and A-tailing followed by direct ligation of customer supplied adapters to reduce clean-up steps, and improve yield and quality of sequence ready libraries. The kits come in PCR and PCR-free versions.
