400 Base-Pair Sequencing Kit
Life Technologies’ new 400 base-pair sequencing kit for the Ion PGM Sequencer is designed to produce reads 60 percent longer than comparable high-throughput benchtop sequencers, generating more complete bacterial de novo assemblies with longer contiguous sequences.
The Ion PGM sequencing 400 kit is ideal for applications that require capturing all the genetic variation in a long exon on a single read. For instance, long reads are critical for researchers trying to interpret genetic data from human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genes or 16S ribosomal genes.
