Default Mate Pair Library Prep Kit v2

Hi all,

one of the researchers of my institution came with a special project and to do so, we would need the "old" Mate Pair Library Prep Kit v2 (using Biotin) to prepare the libraries. One of the companies he contacted told him this kit is not available anymore. Since I do not have any Illumina customer account, I can not check myself.

For people having an Illumina account, can you confirm please? Then we would have to rethink the whole project...

Thanks in advance,

s.

I got the reply from the tech support of Illumina. This kit is still available (in case someone is interested).

Hi,

If I were looking for this kit, I'd double-check that the Illumina representative knows that you are after the 'old' mate-pair kit... Last year, we were told that it had been discontinued. Also, it's not listed on our quote list and it's not available for order on our iCom account (Illumina's ordering website).

Best regards,

Scott.
