PCR Biosystems introduces kit for reliable quantification of libraries prepared for Illumina® NGS systems

PCR Biosystems, the UK-based PCR experts, have expanded their range of specialist molecular biology kits with the introduction of NGSBIO Library Quant Kit for Illumina®.

The new kit contains all the components necessary for accurate and sensitive quantification of DNA libraries prior to next generation sequencing (NGS) with Illumina platforms. Employed for the vast majority of NGS, the Illumina system requires quantification of libraries prior to sequencing to ensure the correct amount of library is loaded into the machine. This is essential for generating the maximum amount of clustering data possible per run, saving valuable time and money.

PCR Biosystems continues to scale up operations to meet demand

We are continuing to scale up operations to ensure the critical enzyme mix for COVID-19 RT-qPCR tests remains available to the UK and global healthcare systems, as demand for testing rises.

Alex Wilson, Co-Founder of PCR Biosystems, explains, “These are unprecedented times, and, as a global PCR company, we are ideally placed to support the scientific and healthcare communities in their response to COVID-19. When the enormity of COVID-19 testing requirements became apparent, we immediately started scaling up production of the critical components. We already have capacity to supply 4 million reactions’ worth of reagent every day – and we have the option to scale up further if needed to ensure we can always meet global demand.”
