Collibri PCR-free Enzymatically Sheared DNA Library Preparation

Improve library generation for high-throughput sequencing with high yields and strong coverage of biologically important genes with the Invitrogen Collibri PCR-Free Enzymatically Sheared (ES) DNA Library Preparation Kit for Illumina Systems or the Invitrogen Collibri ES DNA Library Preparation Kit for Illumina Systems.

All components, including shearing enzymes, indexed adaptors, amplification master mix (if relevant), and cleanup beads are included for convenience and performance. Unique Dual Indexes (UDIs) are available for 24 or 96 reactions to filter index-hopped reads on patterned flow cells.

PCR is a choice

Yield from PCR-free Collibri ES DNA protocols is optimized to convert 100 ng of DNA into sufficient amount of library to perform quantification and more than two runs on an Illumina™ NovaSeq™ system. Resulting libraries contain fewer chimeric reads than older library prep technology.

Coriell NA12878 DNA

Figure 1. Coriell NA12878 DNA was converted into sequencing libraries using the manufacturer’s recommended PCR-free protocols and concentration was measured by the Collibri Library Quantification kit. Libraries were sequenced on an Illumina NovaSeq 6000 System.

Strong coverage of biologically important genes

Consistent gene coverage of biologically important genes enables greater discovery power without additional sequencing depth. Improve sensitivity of variant detection from low inputs of DNA compared to older library prep technology.

Whole-genome library preparation workflow

Genomic DNA extraction

We offer a range of Invitrogen genomic DNA extraction kits for sensitive, scalable purification from an expansive set of starting materials to help maximize process efficiency and downstream performance. This includes a broad range of kits for purifying genomic DNA from a variety of samples including tissue, cells, blood, serum, plants, forensic samples, and more.

Automate DNA extraction using magnetic bead-based technology and KingFisher instruments to bind, wash, and elute DNA to reduce your hands-on time while maintaining high yields and excellent reproducibility.

Sensitive and specific nucleic acid quantification

The Qubit dsDNA high-sensitivity (HS) and broad-range (BR) assays are highly selective for double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) over RNA and single-stranded DNA (ssDNA). The high-sensitivity assay is recommended for samples with a low concentration of dsDNA, making it ideal for precious samples.

Recommended accessories

Quantification options to scale throughput

The qPCR-based Collibri Library Quantification kit scales well for larger sample batches and is the ideal method for precious samples or clinical samples. Quantification accuracy is equivalent to the KAPA Library Quantification kit with the additional benefit of visual feedback during the quantification process.

The Qubit dsDNA HS Assay is a fluorometric assay that uses dsDNA-binding dyes in order to accurately determine NGS library concentration, and benefits from a simple workflow of just a few minutes per sample. 

Regardless of the assay that is chosen, good laboratory technique should be used in order to ensure accurate measurement of library concentrations and high-quality Illumina sequencing data.
