SPRIselect for Fragment DNA Size Selection

SPRIselect is a SPRI-based chemistry that speeds and simplifies nucleic acid size selection for fragment library preparation for Next Generation sequencing. In this process, size selection is required to produce a uniform distribution of fragments around an average size. Using SPRIselect, the size distribution can be adjusted to suit the application and platform used. The process can be scaled for low to high throughput workflows.

The guidance provided below can be used to optimize the desired size selection range. Used manually or automated on a liquid handling system such as the Biomek Laboratory Automation Workstation, SPRIselect will provide rapid and consistent size selection suitable for most applications.

Productivity and discovery go hand-in-hand.

Next Generation Sequencing is the most pervasive technology in genomic research today. The long list of front-end applications have varied library preparation requirements that demand flexible solutions. The size of DNA has a direct impact on generating desired sequencing results. The new SPRIselect Reagent Kit is designed to give scientists more flexibility and control over the size selection process. With proven, industryleading Solid Phase Reversible Immobilization (SPRI) technology, this reagent provides robust, reproducible and customizable size selection.

  1. Tunable from 150 to 800 base pairs
  2. Efficient mag bead technology eliminates the need for gels, chips or special instrumentation
  3. Easily adjust for specific application and sequencer
  4. Consistent results, reproducible sizing between runs and reagent lots
  5. Scalable from manual to automated for highthroughput processing in 96-well plates
  6. Proven proprietary technology is already the gold standard for purification steps in Next Gen Sequencing (NGS) sample prep
