Individual blocking oligos
Reduce off-target capture by preventing adapter
cross hybridization with xGen® Blocking Oligos.
xGen Blocking Oligos bind to adapter sequences to help prevent non-specific binding. Blocking the adapter sequences significantly improves capture performance. All xGen blocking oligos are compatible with any xGen Lockdown® Panel or custom
xGen Lockdown Probe set. Various blocking oligo options are available to accommodate different requirements and sequencing platforms. Choose from:
- xGen Standard Blocking Oligos
- xGen Blocking Oligos for Ion Torrent adapters
IDT recommends xGen Universal Blockers for Illumina TruSeq® and Nextera™ indexed libraries.
