The HiSeq PE (Paired-End) Cluster Kit v4 cBot provides reagents for the cBot cluster amplification system. DNA library samples are bound to complimentary adapter oligos grafted on the surface of the flow cell. The templates are copied from the hybridization primer by 3’ extension using a high fidelity DNA polymerase. Copies are isothermally amplified to create clonal clusters of ~1000 copies each, ready for sequencing on enabled HiSeq systems*.
Cluster generation reagents provided in a pre-mixed, 96 well plate format that requires minimal reagent preparation. The kit also included reagents for cluster resynthesis of the reverse strand, regenerated by bridge amplification within the paired-end flow cell. After resynthesis of the reverse strand, the original forward strand is cleaved and the reverse strand is sequenced for the second read.
