If you are trying to find out the primer sequences used for amplifying 16S region in a particular kit, the easiest way would be preparing NGS libraries form amplicons by using a different NGS platform. For instance, if the kit is designed for platform ITxx, you can amplify the regions and then after clean up use ampliconas as input into ILxx library prep. Sequencing would be expected to start from primers.
