"We are extremely pleased that OICR, as a world leading genome center, has determined that our reagents meet their high standards," stated Dr. Peter Nathan, Director of Global Business Development at New England Biolabs.

NEBNext(TM) DNA Sample Prep Reagent Sets contain enzymes and buffers that are ideally suited for sample preparation for next generation sequencing, and for preparation of expression libraries. Reagents are available for each step of the library construction workflow, including end repair, dA-tailing, adapter ligation and amplification. These sets are highly cost effective and each of the components must pass rigorous quality control and validation, including independent third-party evaluation on the appropriate NGS platform.
