Archer Universal DNA Reagents are now included in all Archer VariantPlex kits. Effective February 5th, 2016 all Archer VariantPlex Kits will include all buffers, enzymes, reagents previously provided separately in Archer Universal Reagent Kits, v2. PreSeq QC Assays will also be combined into the new kit format. Archer MBC Adapters will continue to be provided separately to preserve flexibility and index diversity.
Please note that while the product number for the kits have changed, the formulations, component part numbers and shipping conditions have not. Individual assay components will be provided with lot numbers and expiration dates. Furthermore, there will be no increase in the price of the historical components that make up the new kit format.
Have any questions about the change in format? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or chat with an online representative
The Archer® Universal DNA Reagent Kit Version 2 includes all reagents necessary for the NGS library preparation. In combination with Archer Molecular Barcodes and a VariantPlex™ Panel, the Archer Universal DNA Reagent Kit v2 utilizes Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP) to generate sequencing ready, amplified genomic targets.
The workflow is a series of sequential transfers of input nucleic acid into tubes that contain lyophilized pellets of all of the enzymes and buffers required for each reaction step.
The reagents are lyophilized, and single reactions are aliquoted into 8-tube strips, eliminating the need to make master mixes and minimizing the risk of sample cross contamination. The pouch labels and tubes for each step are also color coded for easy identification.
The Archer VariantPlex system is a reliable method to generate target-specific libraries for next-generation sequencing. The modular nature of the system ensures platform compatibility and accurate library preparation. To generate a library for sequencing, you will need one of each of the following:
Gene-specific primers that enable amplification on your specific targets of interest
Platform-specific kits that contain lyophilized enzymes and reagents for library prep
