Achieving reliable sequencing data while preserving the integrity of the original DNA sample is important for constructing your DNA library. We've developed a wide selection of separation technologies for preparing DNA fragment libraries for next-generation sequencing—ranging from UltraPure™ agarose to the E-Gel® SizeSelect™ system, which has been successfully used in two sequencing platforms.
