NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Kapa Biosystems will supply DNA library prep reagents for 10X Genomics' GemCode platform, the companies said today.
GemCode is a molecular barcoding and analysis platform that consists of instrumentation, reagents, and software to generate a data type called Linked-Reads, which deliver long-range information, including haplotype phasing, structural variation, and other critical genomic information from as little as 1 nanogram of DNA.
Kapa uses a proprietary directed evolution technology platform to engineer enzymes for the specific performance and functional requirements of next-generation sequencing sample prep. The GemCode Platform incorporates both the KAPA Hyper Prep Kit and KAPA HiFi DNA Polymerase in the library construction process to enable high-efficiency adapter ligation and low-bias library amplification, the companies said.
Financial and other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
