PicoPLEX DNA-seq Kit—Single-Cell Library Preparation for Illumina NGS Platforms
PicoPLEX technology, used to detect copy number variation in single cells on arrays, is now available in a single-tube format for use on Illumina NGS platforms. PicoPLEX WGA has long been used by IVF clinics worldwide for pre-implantation genetic screening and diagnosis in detecting chromosomal aneuploidies and copy number variations.
The PicoPLEX DNA-seq Kit streamlines library preparation; the entire process is performed in a single tube or well, thus reducing error and contamination, speeding up time to results, and reducing costs. The kit contains 48 reactions and includes everything necessary to convert 48 individual cells or DNA (6 pg to 60 pg) to NGS libraries, including barcodes. Barcoding oligonucleotides are provided in a single-use microwell plate.
The recommended sequencing platforms for PicoPLEX libraries are the Illumina MiSeq® System and HiSeq® 2000/2500. For use on the Illumina NextSeq® sequencer, please contact techUS@takarabio.com prior to library preparation.
