The NGSBIO Library Quant Kit Blue offers a reliable qPCR-based method for the quantification of libraries prepared for Illumina® NGS systems. The kit includes 5 DNA standards, primers specific to the P5 and P7 Illumina® adapter sequences and qPCRBIO SyGreen Blue Mix. The blue qPCR mixes contain a non-reactive dye to improve reaction mix visibility, allowing greater pipetting precision and reduced errors without affecting your real-time PCR performance.
The kit uses an easy-to-see blue qPCR mix to specifically quantify adapter-ligated DNA molecules, ensuring optimal cluster densities for improved sequencing efficiency and quality of data.
The advanced qPCR buffer system has been developed using our high-throughput smart screen technology to ensure efficient amplification of all your libraries, including those that are GC or AT-rich.
The kit is also supplied with a convenient library dilution buffer. qPCR is considered the best method for quantifying NGS libraries as it only measures adapter-bound molecules that can be used as templates for library amplification and cluster generation.
The NGSBIO Library Quant Kit enables highly accurate quantification crucial for optimal cluster densities and greater sequencing efficiency. Library quantification can be used at any time after adapter ligation and should always be used prior to cluster generation. Overestimating library concentration can result in insufficient cluster density and underestimating library concentration can result in a high, saturating cluster density. To learn more about optimal cluster density, consult the instructions of your Illumina® machine.
The DNA standards supplied are precisely measured and ready-to-use, covering 5 orders of magnitude from 2pM to 0.2fM. The kit is suitable for quantification of even low concentration libraries including libraries constructed without a PCR amplification step.
The NGSBIO Library Quant Kit is compatible with all qPCR platforms and is optimised to give consistent and reproducible library quantification across a wide range of sample types, fragment sizes (up to 1000bp), concentrations and GC content. Use the qPCR Selection Tool or the qPCRBIO selection table to find out which ROX variant is compatible with your instrument.
