COVID Mini: 576 samples
C19MINI

A simple, scalable and rapid method for sequencing up to 576 SARS-CoV-2 samples.

$7,284.00

Information

A simple, scalable and rapid method for sequencing up to 576 SARS-CoV-2 samples:

  • Midnight Expansion Kit with RT-PCR reagents and primers to amplify SARS-CoV-2 from input RNA
  • Rapid Barcoding Kits 96 to barcode and prepare the amplified material for sequencing
  • MinION/GridION Flow Cells to perform sequencing on MinION or GridION devices
  • Sequence for as little as $12.65 per sample

How it works

The Midnight method amplifies the SARS-CoV-2 genome in 29 overlapping amplicons (~1,200 bp long). By amplifying longer amplicons, Oxford Nanopores rapid chemistry can be deployed enabling users to rapidly attach a barcode, pool samples and adapt them for sequencing. This method is simple and quick to deploy. It allows rapid turn-around-times that can assist with monitoring of novel variants of concern.

The protocol delivers robust full genome coverage across a wide range of Ct values.

Users can pair the library preparation with an Oxford Nanopore analysis solution to enable a complete end-to-end workflow.

*users wishing to run in multiples of 24 will need to buy 12 x Flow Cell Wash Kits (EXP-WSH004)

Shipping and logistics:

Flow cells and kits are shipped together in a temperature-controlled shipping box with gel ice packs. Ice packs are stored at 2-8°C.

Products are shipped to customers within the USA and EU Monday to Thursday. Shipments to Canada, Norway, Korea and Japan are expedited Monday to Wednesday; with Australia and New Zealand leaving our warehouses on a Friday. Shipments to the rest of the world are made on Mondays to allow the full working week for packages to arrive.

The delivery charges are calculated when a quote is raised or during checkout. Once an order is made, the delivery ID and delivery information can be tracked in the Store.

Workflow

The sample preparation workflow is simple, flexible and rapid.
