NEBNext® Sample Preparation for Next Generation Sequencing

Preparation of high quality libraries at high yield is a critical first step in next generation sequencing workflows. NEBNext® reagents are a series of highly pure reagents that facilitate sample preparation of DNA and RNA and target enrichment of DNA for next generation sequencing. NEBNext kits are carefully designed to improve yields and library diversity using a broad range of input amounts from a wide variety of sample types. This has been most recently expanded with the addition of a novel enzyme-based DNA fragmentation system in the NEBNext Ultra II FS DNA Library Prep Kit (NEB #E7805), which enables reliable high-yield high-quality library construction with as little as 100 pg of input DNA.

Another recent technology addition to the NEBNext product line is NEBNext Direct® for target enrichment. This unique hybridization-based technology enables high sensitivity variant calling with the speed and precision previously only feasible using multiplex PCR-based approaches. 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.
