New England Biolabs Develops Novel Small RNA NGS Protocol: Reagents Improve Yield and Decrease Adaptor-Dimer Formation
Ipswich, MA (February 2, 2011) - New England Biolabs has expanded its line of reagents for sample preparation upstream of next generation sequencing to include NEBNext® Small RNA Sample Prep Set 1 for sequencing on the Illumina® platforms, and NEBNext Small RNA Sample Prep Set 3 for sequencing on LIFE's SOLiD™ platform. These new products offer a new and unique protocol, which results in higher yields and lower adaptor-dimer formation, as compared to other protocols. With oligos, enzymes and buffers included, both sets provide substantial cost savings, and the master mix format streamlines the workflow by reducing the number of vials and pipetting steps required.
NEBNext products are a series of highly pure and cost-effective reagents that facilitate DNA and RNA sample preparation for downstream applications, such as next generation sequencing. NEBNext reagents are available for DNA, ChIP-seq, mRNA and small RNA sample preparation. All reagents undergo stringent quality controls and functional validation by sequencing, ensuring maximum yield, convenience and value. Available as reagent sets, master mixes or modules for the three leading next generation sequencing platforms, the full range of NEBNext reagents offer convenience and customization of workflow.
