NGS Library Prep and Multiplexing Kits


Illumina Compatible NGS  Ion Compatible NGS  NGS Automation  Nucleic Acid Isolation


Bioo Scientific provides a complete portfolio of NGS library prep and multiplexing kits designed to increase the sensitivity, flexibility and speed of library prep for the Illumina and Ion Torrent sequencing platforms. We offer complete kits for:

  • Whole Genome Sequencing

    The identifications of the entire genome sequence of a given individual or organism

  • Targeted Resequencing:

    a highly targeted approach to analyzing specific genomic regions using amplicon panels

  • SNP Genotyping

    The identification of variation in genetic sequences

  • Metagenome Analysis

    The study of uncultured bacteria, fungus and micro-eukaryotic organisms

  • Epigenetics:  

    Epigenetics is the study of chemical reactions that activate and deactivate parts of the genome at strategic times and in specific locations.

  • Gene Expression & Transcriptome Profiling

    The analysis of the expression level of RNAs in a given cell or population of cells 

Our NGS library prep kits include an extensive line of NEXTflex™ library prep kits, NEXTflex™ barcoded adapters and NEXTprep™ nucleic isolation kits that have been optimized for sample and library preparation, critical steps in next generation sequencing. We have focused our attention on increasing enzymatic efficiency to achieve robust, high-quality sequencing data and cost effective solutions for next generation sequencing library preparation.

To meet the demands of our high throughput customers, NEXTflex reagents can be supplied in bulk quantities with custom formats. Bioo Scientific has an optimized inventory management system to ensure overnight delivery. We are committed to collaborating and working with customers who have unique research applications.

Analysis Recommendations for DNA-Seq

The advancements and decreased cost of high-throughput sequencing provide researchers with access to a multitude of genetic data. Based on specific experimental goals, methods, and pipeline tools, the extent of data analysis required can be highly variable. Some bioinformatics packages integrate easily into central analysis pipelines, while other tools are more optimized for use as standalone packages.

Detecting Germline Mutations

Mendelian diseases, also known as monogenic diseases, represent a class of disorders associated with genetic variation in one gene. Their inheritance follows classic Mendelian laws, and the phenotype could be expressed in either a dominant or recessive way. Currently, over three thousands genes have been associated with Mendelian diseases including cystic fibrosis, cancer predisposition, epilepsy, and deafness among others.

Bioo Scientific’s Cell Free DNA-Seq Tech Now Manufactured under ISO 13485

To meet the needs of pre-clinical and clinical scientists and to improve traceability and quality control, Bioo Scientific’s NEXTflex™ Cell Free DNA-Seq Kits for the construction of libraries for cell free DNA sequencing are now manufactured under ISO 13485 certification.

Simply Your Cell-Free DNA Isolation and Obtain Higher Quality Libraries for NGS Sequencing

The NextPrep-Mag™ cfDNA Isolation Kit is designed for extracting cell-free DNA (cfDNA) from human blood plasma using an ultra-rapid magnetic bead-based format. The kit can be scaled for use with plasma volumes ranging from less than 1 mL to more than 5 mL. The cfDNA recovered is ideal for constructing libraries for NGS sequencing and for other common applications. This easily automatable kit includes novel magnetic beads that attract almost instantaneously, dramatically reducing the time needed for cfDNA isolation. No vacuum pumps, column extenders, or specialized equipment is required.

Designing Amplicon Panels

A recent OMICS Tutorial published in Genetic Engineering News describes a number of factors which need to be taken into consideration when designing custom panels for the detection of germline and somatic mutations with amplicon sequencing. These factors include required including coverage, uniformity, and multiplexing requirements. Read the article, Designing Amplicon Panels, for more information
