NGS Sample Prep & Target Enrichment

High-quality, high-yield library preparation is a critical first step towards optimizing your next generation sequencing (NGS) workflows. The NEBNext® product line is a series of highly pure reagents for both DNA and RNA sample prep, as well as target enrichment of DNA for NGS. NEBNext kits are carefully designed and QC’d to improve yields and library diversity, using a broad range of input amounts from a wide variety of sample types. Recently, a novel enzyme-based DNA fragmentation system was added to enable streamlined DNA fragmentation, end repair, and dA tailing with a single enzyme mix; this kit, the NEBNext Ultra II FS DNA Library Prep Kit (NEB #E7805), enables reliably high-quality and high-yield library construction with as little as 100 pg of input DNA.

For those looking for a more targeted approach, NEBNext provides NEBNext Direct® for target enrichment. This unique hybridization-based technology enables high-sensitivity variant calling with a speed and precision previously only feasible using multiplex PCR-based approaches. For convenient customization, NEBNext Direct Custom Ready Panels  offer ready-made, optimized baits for over 850 targets, enabling faster time to targeted results. For pre-selected disease-relevant panels, the NEBNext Direct Cancer HotSpot Panel (NEB #E7000) provides highly specific hybridization-based capture of 190 common cancer targets from 50 genes, while the NEBNext Direct BRCA1/BRCA2 Panel (NEB #E6627) generates 100% coverage of all protein coding regions in BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes.
