Bioo Scientific NEXTflex-HT Barcodes

Bioo Scientific has launched NEXTflex-HT barcodes for Illumina sequencing. Each barcode contains 12-nucleotide unique index sequences, preventing ambiguity from PCR errors or sequencing instrument errors. Each pair of consecutive barcodes is color-balanced and suitable for low-level multiplexing. The barcodes have been optimized for use with Bioo Scientific's NEXTflex-branded Rapid DNA-Seq, Cell Free DNA-Seq, mtDNA-Seq, Methyl-Seq, and DNA-Seq kits but can also be used with other Illumina library prep protocols.
