- Fast: 8x less hands-on time than conventional 16S library prep protocols.
- Easy: Premixed Plate minimizes hands-on time and handling errors.
- Simple Workflow: 100% Automation ready with only a single PCR step and no need for normalization. Just pool by equal volume!
The Quick-16S Plus NGS Library Prep Kit (V4) is the fastest and simplest NGS library prep targeting the V4 region of the 16S rRNA gene for high-throughput sequencing. The automation-friendly protocol utilizes a premixed amplification plate and a single qPCR/PCR for combined targeted amplification and barcode addition. Pooling by equal volume and a single clean-up of the final library, rather than massive AMPure® bead-based clean-ups, simplifies the library prep process. Additional library quantification analysis such as TapeStation® analysis or gel electrophoresis are not necessary. With these features, the workflow dramatically reduces the hands-on time of library preparation to only 30 minutes.

Purified total DNA from any organism free from PCR inhibitors. This system has been used by Zymo Research’s Microbiomics Services team to process samples from human, water, soil, food, plants, feces, biofilms, and much more.
The system has been tested with inputs as low as 100 femtograms with no significant impact to the performance of the kit.
This single PCR step combines targeted amplification of the microbial genome and the barcoding index PCR, which allows for a simple and fast workflow.
The combination of using Equalase qPCR Premix to yield roughly equal amounts of libraries and a carefully curated barcode index list results in similar raw sequencing reads across samples.
Equalase amplification and the library prep design may cause some library products to not anneal well, causing a lack of a tight band. These libraries are perfectly fine because preparation for Illumina sequencing includes denaturing libraries into single strands.
This library has been designed to be sequenced using any 300-cycle reagent kit. The use of custom sequencing primers allows for a bit of overlap between reads when using Paired End sequencing, which improves the data quality.
