The MicroSEQ® 500 16S rDNA PCR Kit is the PCR component of the MicroSEQ® 500 16S rDNA Bacterial Identification System, which provides an easy-to-use DNA sequence-based method to identify most bacteria. PCR-amplified products generated with this kit can be sequenced using the MicroSEQ® 500 16S rDNA Sequencing Kit. The two kits together permit the quick and convenient amplification and sequencing of 500 base pairs of the 16S rRNA gene, which can then be compared to the MicroSEQ® 16S rDNA 500 Library to obtain an identity match. This kit does not include a copy of the protocol, nor a Quick Reference Card.

• Sequence-based measurement ensures you get reproducible results in under 24 hours.
• Growth requirement-independent measurement enables you to identify bacteria using objective criteria.
• Universal domain-level primers eliminate up-front optimization.
• MicroSEQ ID Analysis Software ensures accurate species identification.
• Customizable libraries give you the flexibility to create new libraries and search validated libraries that contain the most frequently encountered organisms.
• Requires minimal training-same work flow as the MicroSEQ D2 LSU fungal kit.

The MicroSEQ® ID System: A Complete, Integrated Solution
Streamlining every step in microbial identification, Applied Biosystems MicroSeq System combines the advantages of MicroSEQ ID Software with easy PrepMan Ultra sample preparation reagents and protocols, MicroSeq bacterial and fungal application kits, and industry-leading thermal cyclers and sequencing systems. To ensure optimal performance and system-wide integration, we develop and test all components of the system together.
