NuGen Unique Dual Index Pairs
NuGen Technologies has added 96 unique dual index pairs to several of its library preparation kits. The index pairs enable software to detect when so-called "barcode hopping" has occurred. As a result, they prevent sequence reads from being assigned to the wrong sample. Dual index pairs are currently available for the Ovation Ultralow System V2 for DNA-seq library preparation and for the Universal Plus mRNA-Seq and Trio RNA-Seq systems for RNA-Seq library preparation. They will also be available for the Methyl-Seq product line soon.
