IDT Custom NGS Adapters, Lotus DNA Library Prep Kit

Integrated DNA Technologies has launched custom NGS adapters, which customers can order in three configurations using the company's Custom Adapter Configuration online ecommerce tool: TruSeq-compatible full-length adapters, TruSeq-compatible stubby adapters and indexing primers, and Nextera-compatible indexing primers.

In addition, IDT has released the Lotus DNA Library Prep kit, an enzymatic library preparation solution for whole-genome sequencing and hybridization capture applications. The kit is optimized for use with IDT's custom adapters and xGen capture products and has a 2-hour workflow. It is compatible with TA-ligation adaptors and can be tailored to different applications when combined with the new adapters.
