The Rise of 3D Cell Culture and in vitro Model Systems for Drug Discovery and Toxicology
An overview of the current technology and the challenges and benefits over 2D cell culture models plus some of the latest advances relating to human health research.
Grant Supports Project To Develop Simple Test To Screen For Cervical Cancer
UCLA Engineering announces funding from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Injecting New Life into Old Antibiotics
A new fully synthetic way to make a class of antibiotics called macrolides from simple building blocks is set to open up a new front in the fight against antimicrobial drug resistance.
Insight into Bacterial Resilience and Antibiotic Targets
Variant of CRISPR technology paired with computerized imaging reveals essential gene networks in bacteria.
Advancing Protein Visualization
Cryo-EM methods can determine structures of small proteins bound to potential drug candidates.
Alzheimer’s Protein Serves as Natural Antibiotic
Alzheimer's-associated amyloid plaques may be part of natural process to trap microbes, findings suggest new therapeutic strategies.
Slime Mold Reveals Clues to Immune Cells’ Directional Abilities
Study from UC San Diego identifies a protein involved in the directional ability of a slime mold.
How Do You Kill A Malaria Parasite?
Drexel University scientists have discovered an unusual mechanism for how two new antimalarial drugs operate: They give the parasite’s skin a boost in cholesterol, making it unable to traverse the narrow labyrinths of the human bloodstream. The drugs also seem to trick the parasite into reproducing prematurely.
Illuminating Hidden Gene Regulators
New super-resolution technique visualizes important role of short-lived enzyme clusters.

Next-generation sequencing of highly multiplexed samples: the NuGEN Encore™ 384 Multiplex System
Bookmark and Share


NuGEN Technologies, Inc.

Advances in DNA sequencing throughput afforded by highly parallel, reversible-terminator sequencing platforms have completely redefined our view of biological inquiry. Crisp, high-resolution, digital views of whole-genome biology provide both profound clarity and significance. As with any disruptive technology, implementation creates turbulence. In the case of NGS, accelerated sequencing throughput has created challenges in upstream sample preparation and downstream data analysis. Initially, sample preparation was particularly problematic because it required individuals with highly specialized molecular biology skills for the hands-on execution of complex protocols. Fortunately, automated solutions for NGS library preparation have arrived, and it is reasonable to expect broad dissemination of turnkey solutions for routine library generation in the very near future. What remains problematic is that some sequencing projects involve large numbers of samples that require relatively shallow sequencing coverage. The sequencing costs of such projects are often prohibitive, calling for methods to multiplex high sample numbers in the same sequencing run. The obvious solution is to combine many samples into a single sequencing lane, and there are now many reports in the literature describing ad hoc methods and strategies for multiplexing samples prior to sequencing. Here we introduce a commercial solution for deep multiplexing of NGS samples that builds on our Encore™ NGS Multiplex System. The Encore 384 Multiplex System consists of a refined set of 384 molecularly “bar-coded” library adaptors that enable deep multiplexing of sequencing samples within a library preparation system that is compatible with high-throughput automation. The version of the product discussed in this White Paper contains adaptor sequences compatible with Illumina sequencing platforms.
