This kit selectively zooms into a bacterial population of microbiome samples and provides comprehensive profiling based on all 9 variable regions and barcode-based molecular counting. It also features a multiplex workflow that pools 24 samples into a single tube with less than 3 hours of hands-on time.


We use the same technology for our 16S & 16S/18S Read Cloud Kits, we just sequence less, producing a less dense could of short reads. With the same number of barcodes as the standard kit, you'll still see even low-abundance molecules. However, with fewer reads/barcode, not every molecule has enough reads to make a full-length contig.

It’s the perfect kit for labs looking for better data from samples with high background non-bacterial DNA. Compatible with all Illumina instruments.*


*HiSeqs, NextSeqs, and NovaSeqs are recommended for per base cost benefits.
