ted-Meta™ Library Prep Kit


In the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, global scientific community focus on eradicate the virus, develop a vaccine, and therapeutics to suppress symptoms, etc. The genetic information of the SARS-CoV-2 virus carry some of the most critical clues to the success in this fight across the planet. ted-Meta™ Library Prep Kit enable clinical researchers to prepare NGS library from patient’s sample in as few as 2 hours.
