Save up to 50% on mate-pair libraries for de novo genome assembly*

Set up your de novo sequencing the right way with the Ion TrueMate™ Library Kit. The kit generates mate-pair libraries with an insert size of 2–8 kb with far greater mate pair efficiency compared to competitor mate pair kits, with chimeras largely prevented.

The Ion TrueMate™ Plus Library Kit works with high-efficiency DNA fragment shotgun sequencing to enable fast, easy, and accurate genome assemblies. This kit comes with a selection of restriction enzymes needed for the generation of mate-pair libraries (2-8 kb inserts) from any genomic DNA.

If you want to select your own restriction enzymes for optimal cleavage of their genome of interest, select the Ion TrueMate™ Library Kit, which does not include restriction enzymes.
