Structural variations are present throughout the genome and are associated with various diseases. Mate-paired libraries, in conjunction with 5500 Series Genetic Analysis Systems, provide a valuable method for detecting genomic rearrangements such as insertions, deletions, duplications, and translocations. The 5500 SOLiD™ Mate-Paired Library Kit provides a fully optimized set of enzymes and reagents needed for construction of 12 Mate-Paired libraries from as little as 1 µg of DNA input.*

Benefits of the 5500 SOLiD™ Mate-Paired Library Kit:
• A convenient and simplified workflow—includes all reagents, columns, and gels for the construction of 12 libraries
• Optimized and platform flexible protocol for accurate analysis with either the 5500 Series Genetic Analysis Systems or SOLiD™ 4 System.
• Offers a process friendly protocol with low DNA input requirement (1–5 µg) and 3-to 10-fold yield improvement over the previous kit.
• Provides a lower cost per Mate-Paired library compared to the previous kit.

5500 SOLiD™ mate-paired sequencing can generate sequencing reads with a distance ranging from a few hundreds to tens of hundreds of base pairs from as little as 1 µg of input DNA. It provides critical information for shotgun based whole genome sequencing and structural variation study in a massively parallel fashion. The 5500 SOLiD™ Mate-Paired Library Kit uses a new intramolecular circularization (NIC) method and optimized workflow which removes most column-based purification steps. This new LMP protocol improves the library yield 3-to-10 fold depending on the insert size and input amount. Mate-paired sequencing has eliminated adaptor dimer carry-over in the final library and further decreased false mate-pairing rate. This approach not only produces most balanced tag sizes on each end, but is also very scalable on tag length to accommodate consistent increase on sequencing read length.

*We recommend using 1 µg of input for low coverage or less complex genomes, and 5 µg for higher coverage or more complex genomes.

Note: AMPure® Beads are not included and must be purchased directly from Beckman Coulter.
