ted-scDNA(™) Library Preparation Kit


85% human genome coverage from a single cell at 30x sequencing depth
ted-scDNA™ kit includes reagents for a novel whole genome amplification and conversion of a genome of a single to few cells into Illumina® sequencing libraries. Provides micro-CNV detection with kilobase resolution across the genome and ~ 85% coverage of the genome from 1 cell.
User needs to provide PCR and Illumina® indexing reagents.
