Diagenode and Bioline today announced a newly developed, streamlined solution for DNA library preparation prior to next generation sequencing combining the JetSeq® Flex DNA Library Preparation Kit and the Diagenode Bioruptor® sonication system.
The Bioline JetSeq Flex DNA Library Preparation Kit is based on proprietary technology that contains optimized buffer systems to create high quality libraries starting from a DNA input ranging between 1 ng and 1 µg, using any Illumina-compatible adapters. End-repair and ligation can be conducted in the same tube, reducing hands-on time and minimizes cross-contamination. In addition, the optional amplification step is carried out using a high fidelity Pfu-derived polymerase, ensuring low amplification bias.
The Bioruptor Pico from Diagenode represents a breakthrough as an all-in-one shearing system optimized for shearing micro-volumes of 5 μl to larger volumes of up to 2 ml. The Pico enables controlled and consistent shearing of up 16 samples simultaneously to produce DNA fragments within the optimal size range required for library preparation.
Marco Calzavara, President of Bioline commented, “We are excited to show with this Application Note how JetSeq Library Preparation Kit and Bioruptor Pico can efficiently complement each other in a simple and reliable workflow, giving to our customers a powerful solution in NGS library preparation”.
“We are pleased to present this combined workflow using the JetSeq and Bioruptor solutions,” said Jerome Kroonen, Strategic Marketing Manager at Diagenode. “Customers have access to a workflow for optimal library preparation that is both flexible and easy to use.”
In the two companies’ latest application note, the combined use of the Bioruptor Pico and JetSeq Flex DNA Library Preparation kit enabled production of high quality data with low duplication levels, low GC bias and a high percentage of unique mapping reads.
