This kit is for de novo bacterial genome sequencing and assembly or to deliver a comprehensive metagenomics survey and accurate relative abundance of many molecules in DNA samples. Single molecule long read data is generated as well as relative abundance using 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.

It’s the perfect kit for labs looking to perform de novo bacterial genome assembly or for labs looking to get long-read Metagenomics data from any DNA samples they have.

Compatible with all Illumina instruments.*

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