Bioo Scientific Corporation Releases NEXTflex™ 16S V4 Amplicon-Seq Kit for Bacterial Metagenomics Studies

Published: Feb 05, 2013

February 05, 2013 -- The NEXTflex™ 16S V4 Amplicon-Seq Kit has been developed to simplify bacterial metagenomics studies using Illumina® HiSeq and MiSeq platforms. This kit allows users to go from sample to sequence in two hours, making it the fastest library prep kit available.

Using specialized NEXTflex primers that target the V4 region of the 16S subunit, a single PCR amplification simultaneously ligates the necessary sequencing and barcoded region for multiplexing. The entire workflow requires only one clean-up step maximizing recovery. Ideal for studies of microbiome community composition or comparative metagenomics, the NEXTflex V4 Amplicon-Seq Kit is available with up to 48 barcodes. Higher degrees of multiplexing are available on a custom basis.

The NEXTflex 16S V4 Amplicon-Seq Kit is the latest addition to Bioo Scientific’s line of innovative kits for next generation sequencing library preparation. The NEXTflex™ 16S V4 Amplicon-Seq Kit is available for next day delivery.
