NEBNext® Multiplex Oligos for Illumina (Unique Dual Index UMI Adaptors RNA Set 1)
For details on how to combine UMI adaptors with our NEBNext library prep kits, click the product information tab below.
NEBNext® Multiplex Oligos for Illumina® are an essential piece of the NEBNext suite of library preparation products, available in several different configurations for use with NEBNext products or other standard Illumina-compatible library preparation protocols. This set (Unique Dual Index UMI Adaptors RNA Set 1; NEB #7416) was designed and optimized for use in RNA sequencing workflows. These unique dual index adaptors also include a unique molecular identifier (UMI) sequence for more accurate profiling of the transcriptome. Supplied as 96 unique, pre-annealed index adaptors with UMIs, packaged in a single-use 96-well plate with a pierceable foil seal. Universal primers are included.
NEBNext Unique Dual Index UMI Adaptors for DNA-seq (NEB # E7395) are also available, as well as single, dual, and unique dual index primers, plus an optimized adaptor.
NEBNext Multiplex Oligos for Illumina (Unique Dual Index UMI Adaptors RNA Set 1) are built for more streamlined and informative NGS multiplexing, more accurate determination of transcript abundance, and removal of PCR duplicates. These index adaptors contain a pair of unique dual indices (i5 and i7) and one 11 nt UMI sequence. This set includes 96 unique dual index UMI adaptors, packaged in a single-use 96-well plate with a pierceable foil seal. The universal primer mix is supplied in a separate vial.
Combining UMI Adaptors with one of the NEBNext RNA library prep kits is simple and straightforward if you follow the protocols found in the UMI Adaptor-specific library prep kit manuals (listed below).
The NEBNext line of Multiplex Oligos can be used with NEBNext sample prep products or other standard Illumina-compatible library preparation protocols. In addition to this set, index adaptors with UMIs are available for PCR-free and standard DNA-seq (NEB #E7395). For multiplexing without UMIs, NEBNext offers several options for added flexibility, including unique dual index primers (NEB #6440, NEB #6442, NEB #E6444, NEB #E6446), dual index primers (NEB #E7600 and NEB #E7780), and single primer sets (in 12- and 96-index formats; NEB #E7335, NEB #E7500, NEB #E7710, NEB #E7730, NEB #E6609), as well as an option compatible with EM-seq™ and bisulfite sequencing (NEB #E7140).
The NEBNext Multiplex Oligos for Illumina (Unique Dual Index UMI Adaptors RNA Set 1) workflow shown below details the library barcoding steps of the library preparation process.
