Thermo Fisher Scientific Invitrogen Collibri DNA Library Prep Kits

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched several Invitrogen Collibri DNA Library Prep kits for use with high-throughput Illumina sequencing systems. The kits contain a tracking dye to visualize the library prep process and to show that reagents have been properly mixed. The dyes do not interfere with enzymatic reactions and do not affect the sequencing results. Four versions of the kit are available, for either physically sheared or enzymatically sheared DNA, and involving either PCR or no PCR. All kits contain adapters with unique dual indexes or combinatorial dual indexes that enable up to 24 or 96 samples to be pooled for sequencing.
