The MicroSEQ® Full Gene 16S rDNA PCR Kit is the PCR component of the MicroSEQ® 16S rDNA Full Gene Identification Kit, which provides an easy-to-use DNA sequence-based method to identify most bacteria. Use the PCR kit to amplify the bacterial 16S rRNA gene, for subsequent sequencing using the MicroSEQ® Full Gene 16S rDNA Sequencing Kit. This PCR kit does not include a protocol or 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-similar work flow as the MicroSEQ® D2 LSU fungal kit and the MicroSeq 500 16S rDNA 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.
