Ion AmpliSeq™ Library Kit Plus

Back to top


The Ion AmpliSeq Library Kit Plus is designed for rapid preparation of amplicon libraries using Ion AmpliSeq panels. Ion AmpliSeq technology enables scalable, multiplex polymerase chain reactions (PCR) from 12- to 24,000-plex in a single well. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) libraries can be prepared using as little as 1 ng of starting material.

Key product features:
• Scalable and efficient library preparation
• Easy and robust protocol
• Barcoded sample multiplexing

Scalable and efficient library preparation
Using as little as 1 ng of starting material, highly multiplexed PCR amplification of thousands of genomic target regions yields superior coverage uniformity and specificity, without the need of a specialized microfluidics PCR platform. The primers contain proprietary modifications that enable removal of primer sequences during library preparation, thereby resulting in efficient target assessment during sequencing.

Easy and robust protocol
The Ion AmpliSeq Library Kit Plus uses a plate-based format for easier sample handling and tracking, and for compatibility with automation and high-throughput laboratories. The protocol is simple to use and enables high yield and uniformity, reliably and reproducibly. The resulting libraries are ready for downstream template preparation using the automated Ion Chef System (which also provides the option of automated library preparation using the Ion AmpliSeq Kit for Chef DL8) or the Ion OneTouch 2 System followed by sequencing. The intuitive Torrent Suite Software and optional Ion Reporter Software enables automation of data analysis.

Barcoded sample multiplexing
The Ion AmpliSeq Library Kit Plus includes reagents for generating amplicons using Ion AmpliSeq primers and preparing libraries from the resulting amplicons. The kit enables the preparation of barcoded libraries using Ion Xpress Barcode Adapters 1-96 kits or IonCode Barcode Adapters 1-384 kits. Barcoded libraries can be combined and loaded onto a single Ion chip to minimize the sequencing run time and cost, and to allow for accurate sample-to-sample comparisons.
