  • Library Preparation for Next Generation Sequencing

    The success of techniques such as next-generation sequencing, microarrays and library construction is contingent upon the precise and accurate processing of DNA and RNA.

    Library preparation of nucleic acids relies on a coordinated series of standard molecular biology reactions, and preparation of high quality libraries at high yield is a critical first step in the next generation sequencing workflow. As the number of applications in the realm of next generation sequencing increases, so does the need for reagents and protocols for library preparation.

    NEBNext® reagents are a series of highly pure reagents that facilitate library preparation of DNA or RNA for downstream applications such as next generation sequencing and expression library construction.
