Lucigen, Thermo Fisher Team on Mate Pair Kits for Ion Torrent PGM | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Lucigen announced yesterday that it has partnered with Thermo Fisher Scientific to develop and launch a long mate pair library kit for the Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine sequencing platform.

The Ion TrueMate Library Kit will extend the platform's capabilities, enabling long mate pair libraries of up to 8 kb to be run on the PGM. Lucigen said that it used its NxSeq mate pair technology to develop the kit, and it includes a protocol and reagents that have been optimized to eliminate chimera formation.
