The PCR Barcoding Expansion 1-12 is designed to allow the pooling and running together of multiple sequencing libraries on the Oxford Nanopore sequencing devices. The kit includes adapters and Oxford Nanopore forward and reverse PCR primers with the same barcode in both forward and reverse primers. There are 12 unique barcodes and enough of the required adapters to make 6 libraries per barcode. The barcodes have been carefully designed and extensively purified to minimise the opportunity for cross-talk.
There are currently two protocols for this kit, which are provided as examples of how the PCR Barcoding Expansion 1-12 could be applied for for genomic and amplicon libraries. Please note that if you are barcoding cDNA or amplicons, these have to be pre-made in advance. These protocols are open for adaptation and optimisation for specific experimental requirements.

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.
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.
