TriLink Biotechnologies CleanTag Primer Sets
TriLink Biotechnologies has introduced two new primer sets for its CleanTag kit. The Ion Torrent Convert barcode primer sets allow small RNA library preparation on Thermo Fisher Scientific's sequencing platform. According to TriLink, CleanTag includes modified adapters that block adapter-dimer formation. The firm said that CleanTag uses automated, bead-based separation to allow a simplified, cleaner workflow, retaining high sensitivity, and the ability to work with low-abundance RNA input as well as at the single-cell level. Primers in each index set for Ion Torrent include the RT primer, 12 indexed forward-PCR primers, and a reverse-PCR primer.
