Swift Biosciences Introduces Fast, Easy Workflow

Swift Biosciences, Inc. announced an Early Access Program for the Accel-NGS™ DNA Library Kit for NGS systems.

This program follows the successful launch earlier this year of a similar product for use on Ion Torrent platforms.  Swift’s new kit is designed to bring the same benefits - low input requirement, PCR-free capability and fast, easy workflow - to the Illumina platform.  MiSeq and HiSeq users who register for this Early Access Program will be able to experience the benefits of the Accel-NGS technology before the product is widely released and will receive introductory pricing.

With the Accel-NGS DNA Library Kit for Illumina, scientists can now produce high complexity, PCR-free libraries with as little as 250 ng of input DNA.  Libraries at significantly lower input levels can be produced with a few cycles of PCR.   Unlike other products, the Accel-NGS DNA Library Kit does not require intact double-stranded DNA, making it fully compatible with FFPE and damaged samples. Swift’s unique, sequential adaptation process also reduces adapter dimer formation to further maximize sequencing output.

The Accel-NGS DNA Library Kit for Illumina protocol is fast, requiring approximately 90 minutes start-to-finish, and consists of a handful of easy steps, including bead-based separations that eliminate the need for time-consuming, electrophoretic gel-based size selection.  The streamlined Accel-NGS workflow is also suitable for automation.
