SureSelect XT HS2 DNA Kit is Introduced by Agilent Technologies

Agilent Technologies Inc. today introduced a new product designed to address key challenges that laboratories encounter when preparing DNA sequencing libraries for their research. The new Agilent SureSelect XT HS2 DNA Kit represents the state-of-the-art in library preparation and target enrichment, offering researchers a complete solution that allows them to choose workflow options that best suit their needs.

Agilent Technologies notes advantages of the new SureSelect XT HS2 DNA Kit that include:

  • The ability to multiplex hundreds of samples in one sequencing run, which reduces sequencing costs for high-throughput labs.
  • The ability to remove sample contamination as a result of index hopping from reads.
  • Better error correction to detect variants with low allele frequencies (particularly important in cancer applications where the samples are often of varying tumor purity).
  • The option to purchase Solid Phase Reversible Immobilization (SPRI) beads and streptavidin beads as part of a complete kit.

“Agilent’s new SureSelect XT HS2 kit will help us accelerate our capture-based enrichment library preparation, without sacrificing quality,” said Zarko Manojlovic, Ph.D., assistant professor of Research Translational Genomics, and director of the Keck Genomics Platform (KGP). “Since most of our work is focused on the processing of highly degraded samples, the integrated and modular XT HS2 protocol truly provides us the flexibility to adjust on a per-sample basis within a high-throughput processing integration. This empowers us to create robust sample preparation pipelines to push the boundaries of processing precious low-quantity and poor quality samples in an integrated and efficient way.”

“The release of SureSelect XT HS2 demonstrates Agilent’s decade long commitment to innovation of our SureSelect brand to ensure that customers have access to the most comprehensive and cutting-edge solutions for NGS library preparation,” said Lou Welebob, vice president of Commercial Marketing, Diagnostics and Genomics Group at Agilent. “We continue to evolve in order to satisfy our customer’s unmet needs for cancer and constitutional applications.”

Agilent is one of the only vendors in the industry to offer an end-to-end solution for next-generation sequencing, including sample quality control, library preparation, target enrichment, automation, and data analysis.

KGP is a service platform designed to support the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California to provide high-throughput, end-to-end next-generation sequencing services to promote translation of the hidden secrets of genomics into clinically relevant discovery and drive cutting-edge improvements in human health.
