Multiplexing Library Barcoding Reagents
Multiplexing enables the pooling of samples prior to emulsion PCR (ePCR) on the SOLiD™ System. By incorporating more samples per run, multiplexing allows for significant decreases in the cost and handling requirements of ePCR, enrichment, and deposition. This substantially benefits applications such as whole-genome sequencing of small genomes or targeted resequencing of enriched samples.
Both DNA and RNA barcodes are specifically designed to prevent overlapping and permit simple, easy-to-interpret data analysis. All of the kits are packaged in sets of 16 barcodes, with up to 96 distinct barcodes available.
