Close the gap in de novo sequencing
with Ion TrueMate Library Kits

Save up to 25% on mate-pair libraries for de novo genome assembly*

Mate-pair libraries derived from fragments separated by several kilobases of intervening sequence are ideal for research applications such as de novo genome sequencing, gap closure and genome finishing, repetitive genomes, and detection of structural variation.

The Ion TrueMate™ Library Kit generates mate-pair libraries with insert sizes of approximately 2–8 kb and uses ChimeraCode™ and Junction Code™ technology to help ensure that the correct ends of the inserts are sequenced (Table 1).
