Collibri DNA Whole Genome Sequencing Kits

Invitrogen Collibri whole-genome library prep kits improve library prep success for high-throughput Illumina™ next-generation sequencing (NGS) systems.

Accommodates a wide range of sample types and inputs:

  • Intact DNA
  • Degraded DNA, including FFPE or cfDNA
  • Suitable for genomes of all sizes
  • Consistent gene coverage from 1 to 500–1,000 ng

Variant detection is consistent among low abundance (1 ng) and high abundance (500–1,000 ng) samples to confidently analyze variable samples.


Physically sheared DNA

Sequencing studies can now accept a greater diversity of samples and retain confidence in genomic interpretation. Variant detection rates by the Invitrogen Collibri PS DNA Library Prep Kits for Illumina Systems are similar between amplified (1–100 ng) libraries and PCR-free (500–1,000 ng) libraries.

Physically sheared DNA

Figure 1. Coriell NA12878 DNA was converted into a library and sequenced on an Illumina™ NovaSeq™ 6000 system at 372M reads per sample. SNP recall calculated using FreeBayes v1.2.0.

Enzymatically sheared DNA

Consistency of variant detection provides more consistent, predictable results from diverse samples. Variant detection rates by the Invitrogen Collibri ES DNA Library Prep Kits for Illumina Systems are similar between amplified (100 ng) libraries and PCR-free (100 ng) libraries.

Enzymatically sheared DNA

Figure 2. Coriell NA12878 DNA was converted into a library and sequenced on an Illumina NovaSeq 6000 system at 258M reads per sample. SNP recall calculated using FreeBayes v1.2.0.
