The SMRTbell Express Template Prep Kit 2.0 provides a streamlined, single-tube reaction strategy to generate SMRTbell libraries from 500 bp to >50 kb insert size targets to support large-insert genomic libraries, multiplexed microbial genomes and low input DNA libraries.

With this new formulation, which delivers libraries in 4 hours’ time, we have increased both the yield and efficiency of SMRTbell library preparation for SMRT Sequencing, while further minimizing handling-induced DNA damage to retain the integrity of genomic DNA (gDNA).


In this webinar we will:

  • Review two procedures and checklists available to prepare multiplexed microbial libraries and gDNA libraries
  • Discuss the key benefits and performance of the currently supported protocols through examples
  • Provide an update on the preparation of low input DNA libraries starting from 150 ng input material now available
