Swift Biosciences Swift 2S Sonic DNA Library Kit

Swift Biosciences has released the Swift S2 Sonic DNA Library kit for next-generation sequencing of sheared DNA. The sample preparation kit is available in two configurations, for PCR indexing and for PCR-free indexing by ligation. It is compatible with Swift's Normalase technology and requires two hours of sample handling time.

The kits can be used for targeted hybridization capture with panels from Swift, Integrated DNA Technologies, and Twist Bioscience. The Swift HiFi Polymerase Master Mix supplied in the kits is suitable for pre-hybridization PCR to produce yields of 500 ng or greater, from as low as 1 ng DNA input.

The 96 reaction Swift 2S Sonic DNA library kit has a list price of $2,150.
