Additional Information

The Ion Xpress™ Barcode Adapters 81-96 Kit provides a set of 16 unique barcode adaptors specifically designed and validated for optimal performance with the Ion Torrent PGM™ and Proton™ semiconductor sequencers. When used in combination with the Ion Xpress™ Plus Fragment Library Kit or the Ion Plus Fragment Library Kit, this kit enables users to pool up to 16 fragment libraries prior to emulsion PCR and then conduct multiplexed sequencing analysis, simplifying the Ion semiconductor sequencing workflow for a wide range of applications, including targeted enrichment. Use of this kit with other Barcode Adapters kits allows pooling of up to 96 fragment libraries.

Features of the Ion Xpress™ Barcode Adapters 81-96 Kit include:

  • Enables multiplexing of numerous fragment library samples on a single sequencing chip with the use of robust molecular barcodes
  • Both sequence- and flow-optimized for equal representation all barcodes in a pool and more economical multiplexed sequencing runs
  • Robust error correction built in by design for added confidence in sample identification

Multiplexing with Barcode Adaptors Enables Higher Throughput

Multiplexing with barcoded libraries leads to more cost effective runs by permitting up to 96 samples per run (16 with this kit), significantly decreasing the cost and handling requirements of emPCR, enrichment, and sequencing.

Sequence- and Flow-Optimized for Increased Performance and Efficiency

Barcode adapters contain sequences that are optimized to provide equal representation of all barcodes in a pool, require a minimum number of flows to interrogate, and require only 17 bases of adaptor sequencing required which results in more economical multiplexed sequencing runs.

Robust Error Correction Built In by Design

Built-in error correction virtually eliminates the possibility of incorrect sample assignment.
