Product News: New Nucleic Acid Purification Kit for Next-Generation Sequencing

Bioline Launches New JetSeq™ Clean Kit for Next-Generation Sequencing

04 Aug 2017

Bioline, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Meridian Bioscience, Inc. has announced the further expansion of the JetSeq™ portfolio today for Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) library preparation.

The new JetSeq Clean Kit is a clean-up system based on paramagnetic bead technology, designed for efficient purification of nucleic acid fragments in the next-generation sequencing workflow. JetSeq Clean removes salts, primers, primer-dimers, and dNTPs; while library fragments are selectively bound to the magnetic particles based on their size, allowing one-sided and two-sided "solid phase reversible immobilization" (SPRI) size selection. Purified library fragments are eluted from the magnetic particles using water or a low salt buffer and can be used directly for all downstream NGS applications.

Marco Calzavara, President of Bioline commented, “We are pleased to announce the release of the new JetSeq Clean Kit. The release of the new JetSeq Clean Kit complements the JetSeq Library preparation and JetSeq Quantification kits, extending our portfolio of high quality products to help researchers with NGS library preparation.”

Richard L. Eberly, President, Chief Commercial Officer, stated, “This is another important addition to our innovative portfolio of NGS products and gives our life science customers greater confidence in the production their sequencing libraries. The continued development of the JetSeq family shows our commitment to the expansion of products from Bioline in this field and continued commitment to our customers, giving them a greater support around this fast-growing field.
