Epicentre Biotechnologies announced the availability of Nextera kits for preparation of Illumina-compatible sequencing libraries. The kits enable libraries to be prepared from as little as 50 ng of DNA in under 2 hours. Last month, Epicentre launched the Nextera product line with kits designed for Roche 454 GS FLX and Titanium sequencers.

The kits use Epicentre's patented transposon-based technology to randomly fragment the template DNA and tag the ends in a single-tube reaction.

"It's ground-breaking technology for people used to the standard, ligation-based library procedures that begin with nebulization, sonication, or other mechanical shearing methods," said Dr. Nick Caruccio, Epicentre's Director of Market Development. "The kits greatly reduce the amount of hands-on time required, waste very little sample, and enable much higher throughput. The response from early adopters of the technology has been very positive."
