NEBNext Direct® offers a novel approach to NGS Target Enrichment. Using a unique, capture-based protocol, NEBNext Direct offers a range of solutions for highly specific, efficient targeting of genomic loci of interest. Optimized, 1-day protocols allow for rapid profiling of targeted regions for a variety of applications, including germline and somatic variant calling for translational research and genotyping of genomic markers for applications in agricultural biology and sample identification.

Define your own targeted sequencing panel by selecting only the genes you want from our expansive list of genes using NEBNext Direct Custom Ready Panels. For genotyping applications, the NEBNext Genotyping Solution enables pre-capture pooling of up to 96 samples for cost-effective and scalable genotyping of up to 5,000 genomic markers.
