Flow Cell Priming Kit XL

Flow Cell Priming Kit XL

This product has a lead time of 3 weeks



The Flow Cell Priming Kit contains Flush Buffer (FB) and Flush Tether (FLT), sufficient for 48 reactions.

The kit can be used to prime a MinION or PromethION flow cell for sequencing, or to add more fuel to a flow cell during a sequencing experiment. It is compatible with the Ligation Sequencing Kit XL (SQK-LSK109-XL), and allows users to prepare multiple libraries using a multichannel pipette or a sample prep robot.

Shipping and logistics:

Flow cells and kits are shipped together in an environmentally friendly temperature-controlled shipping box.

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.
