Sygnis TruePrime Single-Cell WGA Kit V2

Sygnis has launched the TruePrime Single-Cell WGA Kit V2 for whole-genome amplification.

The kit is based on the company's proprietary TruePrime DNA amplification technology, which uses a combination of proteins to efficiently amplify the smallest amounts of DNA. Features include a complete absence of common artifacts linked to the use of oligonucleotides; reduced amplification bias in genome coverage compared to methods using random synthetic primers; and the inclusion of human genomic DNA as an internal positive controlIn addition, the kit provides new lysis conditions that allow WGA from a broader range of cell types, the company said.
