Fast Library Prep, Optimized for Small Genomes, PCR Amplicons, and Plasmids
- Rapid library preparation – complete library prep in as little as 90 minutes with only 15 minutes of hands-on time
- Fast time to results – go from DNA to data in 8 hours with our benchtop sequencers.
- Recommended for small genomes, PCR amplicons, and plasmids – one library prep kit for many applications
- Innovative sample normalization – eliminates the need for library quantification before sample pooling and sequencing
With Nextera technology, DNA is simultaneously fragmented and tagged with sequencing adapters in a single-tube enzymatic reaction. Nextera XT supports ultra-low DNA input of only 1 ng. It supports a wide range of input samples, including small genomes, PCR amplicons greater than 300 bp, plasmids, microbial genomes, concatenated amplicons, and double-stranded cDNA.

Multiplexing of up to 384 samples per Nextera XT library is available for projects requiring greater throughput. Plus, the kit includes an innovative bead-based sample normalization that eliminates the need for library quantification prior to pooling and sequencing. Libraries prepared with Nextera XT kits are compatible with all Illumina sequencers.
The IDT for Illumina-Nextera DNA UD Indexes Sets A, B, C, and D Indexes offer up to 384 unique dual indexing, which allows accurate assignment of reads and efficient use of the flow cell. These unique dual index codes use 10 bp codes. This change in base pair index codes requires adjustments to the sequencing run setup.
