Hot news for researchers doing next-generation sequencing (NGS): Agilent recently announced that the SureSelect Target Enrichment system supports multiplexed DNA sequencing of 12 to 16 samples per lane, reducing costs and significantly increasing throughput.
Protocols are robust and easy to follow, enabling multiple samples to be run together, but their data to be analyzed separately. The kits are optimized for the Illumina Genome Analyzer and the Applied Biosystems SOLiD platform. The Illumina can sequence 12 samples per lane for a total of 96 samples per run. The SOLiD platform can sequence 16 samples per quadrant or octet, allowing up to 256 samples to be processed per run.
