Next generation sequencing (NGS), is a method of non-Sanger-based high-throughput DNA sequencing in which millions or even billions of DNA strands can be sequenced in parallel. This massively parallel sequencing technology has transformed biological research, offering an unparalleled level of data collection, invigorating the field of genomics and revolutionizing the potential for understanding our genetic basis. As access to technology increases and costs become more affordable, NGS-based research and applications will continue to grow.
BioCat offers a comprehensive suite of products and technologies to facilitate sample preparation for Next Generation Sequencing on Illumina platforms, including kits for library preparation and target enrichment.
Sanger sequencing, the DNA sequencing method based on the selective incorporation of chain-terminating dideoxynucleotides by DNA polymerase, has been the most widely used sequencing method for approximately 40 years. Despite the rapid development of other sequencing technologies, Sanger sequencing is still the gold standard DNA sequencing method.
A whole set of reagents that can be independently used as alternatives to the BigDye® chemistry for Sanger sequencing, including SupreDye™ Cycle Sequencing Kits and PwrPOP™ Polymers, is provided.
