PCR Biosystems NGSBIO Library Quant Kit

PCR Biosystems has launched the NGSBio Library Quant kit for Illumina next-generation sequencing platforms.

The kit enables accurate and sensitive quantification of DNA libraries and generates more clustering data per run than previous solutions. The kit contains five DNA standards, primers specific to the P5 and P7 Illumina adapter sequences, a library dilution buffer, and qPCRBio SyGreen Mix or qPCRBio SyGreen Blue mix. The blue qPCR mix contains a non-reactive dye to improve reaction mix visibility.

Accompanying the kit is a free online calculator to help researchers analyze results with the kit.
