Swift Normalase Amplicon 16S & ITS1 NGS Panels (SNAP)

The Swift Normalase® Amplicon Panels (SNAP) Kit for 16S and ITS1 from Swift Bioscience, offers a robust NGS workflow that provides optimal coverage and NGS data quality on Illumina® sequencing platforms. This kit leverages Swift’s multiplex PCR technology, enabling library construction from DNA using tiled primer pairs to target either (a) all V1-V9 variable regions or (b) ITS1, each with a single pool of multiplexed primer pairs.

Swift Normalase Amplicon 16S & ITS1 NGS Panels (SNAP) utilise multiple overlapping amplicons in a single tube, using a rapid, 2-hour workflow to prepare ready-to-sequence libraries. The PCR1+PCR2 workflow generates robust libraries even from low input quantities of DNA that may be subsequently quantified and normalized with conventional methods such as Qubit® or Agilent Bioanalyzer, or optionally using the included Swift Normalase reagents.

Benefits of using the Swift Normalase Amplicon 16S & ITS1 NGS Panels (SNAP)
• Multiplexed assay covers all variable regions of the 16S rRNA or ITS1 genes in a single primer pool
• Integrated library normalization: Swift’s unique Normalase chemistry enables streamlined library balancing and pooling without the expense of quantification kits
• Unique amplicon chemistry generates diverse clusters without PhiX or phased primers, recovering >20% of reads
• Fast workflow: from DNA to libraries within 2 hours
• High quality data

Swift Normalase Amplicon 16S & ITS1 panel coverage
The Swift SNAP 16S and ITS1 Panels facilitate NGS analysis of complex microbial communities (e.g. bacteria, archaea, fungi) using a single primer pool targeting the 16S rRNA gene (variable regions 1-9) or ITS1 genes. In addition, these panels can be customized with additional targets including antibiotic resistance or virulence genes, allowing sub-genera level identification and functional analysis.
