Swift Biosciences announced an Early Access Program for the Accel-NGS DNA Library Kit for Illumina Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) systems. Swift’s new kit is designed to provide low input requirement, PCR-free capability, and eased workflow to the Illumina platform. With the Accel-NGS DNA Library Kit for Illumina, scientists can now produce high complexity, PCR-free libraries with as little as 250 ng of input DNA. Libraries at lower input levels can be produced with a few cycles of PCR. Unlike other products, the Accel-NGS DNA Library Kit does not require intact double-stranded DNA, making it fully compatible with FFPE and damaged samples. Swift’s unique, sequential adaptation process also reduces adapter dimer formation to further maximize sequencing output. The Accel-NGS DNA Library Kit for Illumina protocol requires approximately 90 minutes start-to-finish, and consists of a handful of steps, including bead-based separations that eliminate the need for time-consuming, electrophoretic gel-based size selection. The Accel-NGS workflow is also suitable for automation.
