Product launch of drMID for Illumina NGS systems (RUO) & discontinuation MID for Illumina NGS Systems

01/06/2016

We are pleased to announce the release of the drMID for Illumina NGS systems kit (ML-0208.240 and ML-0209.240). This kit is an extension of the current MID for Illumina MiSeq™ (ML-0204.240 and ML-0205.240) kit. The new MID kit enables reading of the second index sequence on Illumina’s NextSeq™ platform.

The drMID for Illumina NGS systems kit is developed for incorporating molecular identifiers (MIDs) and adaptors into amplicons of MASTR-based assays requiring Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) in 2 directions (dual read, dr) on all Illumina NGS platforms. This new kit contains the same components as the MID for Illumina MiSeq kit, with the addition of an Index 2 primer mix. This extra primer is included to enable reading of the second index sequence on Illumina’s NextSeq™ platform. All other components, i.e. MID primers, Universal PCR Mix (UPM), Taq DNA polymerase, GS-labeling Mix and Read 1, Read 2 and Index 1 primer mixes remain unaltered. One kit contains 8 specific p7 MID Primers and 6 specific p5 Primers enabling 48 possible p7-p5 combinations. The total amount of reactions per kit is 240.

The use of drMID for Illumina NGS systems kits will be supported for sequencing on Illumina’s MiSeq and NextSeq platform. This research kit is currently available for use in combination with our MASTR assays.

At launch, updated instructions for use will be available for the following product combinations with the drMID for Illumina NGS systems kit:

BRCA Tumor MASTR Plus (RUO)

Tumor Hotspot MASTR Plus (RUO)

SOMATIC 2 MASTR Plus (RUO)

SOMATIC 1 MASTR Plus (RUO)

The updated instructions for the other products will be launched at a later date.

The MID for Illumina MiSeq (RUO) will be fully replaced with the drMID for Illumina NGS systems (RUO). There is a phase out period of 6 months during which the MID for Illumina MiSeq will still be in stock. At the end of the phase out period, all our currently available products which can be combined with the MID for Illumina MiSeq kits will be supported with the drMID for Illumina NGS systems kit.
