This launch 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. With the Accel-NGS PCR-free DNA Library Kit for Illumina, scientists can now produce high complexity, PCR-free libraries with as little as 250 ng of input DNA. Libraries have been achieved from even lower inputs (down to 100 ng), but may require library concentration prior to loading the flow cell. High sequence quality and coverage with very low chimera formation are now possible from low DNA input levels.
The Accel-NGS PCR-free DNA Library Kit for Illumina protocol is fast, requiring approximately 90 minutes start-to-finish, and consists of 5 easy steps. In addition, unlike the other library kits on the market, the Accel-NGS PCR-free DNA Library Kit does not require intact double-stranded DNA, making it compatible with damaged samples. Optional single and dual indexing sets are available.
