The Ion Library Equalizer™ Kit is a simple and seamless bead-based solution replacing the need for library quantification and library dilutions for library normalization as required for any next generation sequencing workflow. The Ion Library Equalizer™ Kit helps reduce labor, reagent costs, and further simplifies the Ion semiconductor sequencing workflow for high sample-throughput or barcoded projects, as well as single or low sample number projects.

The kit workflow consists of three simple steps:

1) Library amplification with Equalizer™ Primers
2) Library capture onto Equalizer™ Beads
3) Heat elution of the normalized library using a specially formulated Equalizer™ Elution Buffer

Simple Workflow
• Seamlessly integrates into your existing library preparation workflow
• Reduced pipetting compared to the Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer®-based workflow
• Faster workflow in high-throughput applications-no need for DNA quantification, calculations, and dilution of DNA libraries
• Minimizes library-to-library variability

Cost Effective
• No additional capital equipment required
• Less expensive than Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer®-based workflow (up to 10 samples)
• Reduced AMPure® XP reagent usage compared to Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer®-based workflow
• Long shelf life: up to 18 months
• Convenient 96-reaction kit helps reduce ordering frequency

• Compatible with all Ion DNA library kits including Ion AmpliSeq™ DNA panels, Ion fragment library kits, and Ion Xpress™ Barcode adaptors
• Use with a single sample or in a 96-well plate format
• Compatible with 3rd party automated liquid handling systems for integrated library preparation and normalization

The Ion Library Equalizer Kit includes the necessary reagents to complete 96 normalization reactions.
