Long-Read Microbiome Seq From Illumina® Sequencers - LoopSeq™

Long-Read Microbiome Seq From Illumina® Sequencers - LoopSeq™

Cambridge Bioscience offers microbiome sample preparation kits enabling long read data from short read Illumina™ sequencers with no extra hardware required. Using a set of enzymes to propagate a barcode intra-molecularly through any piece of DNA or RNA, the LoopSeq™ kits use a simple, single tube workflow to eliminate PCR & GC bias as molecules are labelled in the first step and only sequenced/reported once. 

Benefits Of Using These LoopSeq™ Kits
• Single tube workflow after 20 minute labelling step
• 24 individual microbiome samples multiplexed in a single reaction tube
• Barcode based molecule quantification avoids PCR & GC bias
• Only 10 ng genomic DNA (2 ng/ul) input required
• Consensus error correction lowers Illumina output error
