Circulomics, Oxford Nanopore Technologies: Nanobind UL Library Prep Kit, Ultra-Long DNA Sequencing Kit
Circulomics and Oxford Nanopore Technologies have jointly launched two kits and a workflow to prepare ultra-high molecular weight DNA for sequencing. The method first uses the Circulomics Nanobind Big DNA Kit for DNA extraction. The DNA is then prepared for sequencing using the new Oxford Nanopore Ultra-Long DNA Sequencing Kit and the new Circulomics Nanobind UL Library Prep Kit. The workflow can result in 25 Gb of data per MinIon flow cell and 130 Gb per PromethIon flow cell with N50 read lengths of 100 kb or more.
