Single-use, TA-ligation-ready, full-length adapters
xGen UDI-UMI Adapters combine the accuracy of unique dual indexing with the convenience of single-use format for a variety of sequencing applications on Illumina instruments. These full-length adapters contain 8-base unique dual indexes (UDI) that minimize read misassignment. An optional 9-base unique molecular identifier (UMI) can be used for quantitative assays or low-frequency variant detection. The adapters are available both unmethylated and methylated for bisulfite sequencing. Full-length adapters support PCR-free and PCR-amplified library preparation methods.
Our NGS quality control minimizes risk of misassignment
UDI is the current standard for data accuracy and confidence
UMIs are included for sensitive applications
Adapters are pre-configured and ready to ship
xGen UDI-UMI Adapters include P5 and P7 sequences that are compatible with Illumina sequencing platforms. These full-length NGS adapters are compatible with the Lotus DNA Library Prep Kit and other TA-ligation-based library preparation methods (Figure 1). The adapters contain a 9-base degenerate unique molecular identifier (UMI) in an optional read position. The UMI sequence can be used for quantification (counting applications like RNA-seq and ChIP-Seq) and error correction (low-frequency variant detection). The UMI is downstream of the i7 sample index, making the UMI data/information optional. This unique design provides the ability to run the adapter in 3 different schemes: single index, unique dual index, and unique molecular identifier modes.
