Circulomics Short Read Eliminator XS, XL

Circulomics has launched two new versions of its Short Read Eliminator kit for the depletion of short DNA fragments from high molecular weight DNA samples. The Short Read Eliminator XS kit depletes DNA up to 10 kb in size and the Short Read Eliminator XL kit DNA up to 40 kb. While Circulomics designed the kits for use with its Nanobind DNA extraction kits, researchers can also use them with other DNA extraction methods.
