Does IDT have products for Next Gen Sequencing (NGS) that are not platform specific?

We can synthesize custom adaptors, fusion primers, and other workflow oligonucleotides for next generation sequencing (NGS). We supply both xGen Lockdown Probes (biotinylated Ultramer probes) and 200 pmole Ultramer DNA Plate Oligos for in-solution target capture to enrich known sequences within a genome.

TruGrade Processing Service, a proprietary manufacturing process that is proven to reduce cross-contamination, is also available to improve the accuracy of NGS through reduced index crosstalk.

We offer universal blocker formulations for Illumina and Ion Torrent platforms. However, our application support group can design custom blockers for other platforms.
