Ideal for Monitoring Populations of Microbial Communities</>
The NEXTFLEX® 16S V4 Amplicon-Seq Library Prep Kit 2.0 is designed for the preparation of multiplexed amplicon libraries spanning the V4 hypervariable domain of microbial 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes. These libraries are compatible with paired-end sequencing on the Illumina® sequencing platforms.
Low Input Requirements for 16S rRNA Sequencing</>
As little as 1 ng of genomic DNA can be used to generate libraries using the NEXTflex 16S V4 Amplicon-Seq Library Prep Kit 2.0.
Optimized Protocol Offers Lower PCR Bias and Fewer Off-target Reads
The NEXTFLEX 16S V4 Amplicon-Seq Kit 2.0 incorporates a second PCR step in the protocol for the addition of the sample-specific index which reduces off-target reads encountered during amplicon sequencing.
384 Barcodes Available for Cost-effective 16S V4 rRNA Sequencing
The NEXTFLEX 16S V4 Amplicon-Seq Library Prep Kit 2.0 can be used for multiplexing up to 384 samples, to greatly reduce the cost of sequencing. The barcodes are offered in sets of 4, 12, 48 or 96 barcodes and supplied with 2 reactions worth of each barcode.
Automate your 16S V4 Library Prep to Increase Throughput and Reduce Errors
A NEXTFLEX® automation protocol is now available on the Sciclone® NGS and NGSx workstations to help labs increase their throughput and reduce human errors. Automated versions of the NEXTFLEX® 16S V4 Amplicon-Seq Library Prep kits 2.0 are available by request.
