IDT recently developed a novel amplicon sequencing technology, called the rhAmpSeq™ system, which leverages a proprietary rhPCR chemistry (also known as rhAmp™ PCR). Using a unique, two-enzyme system and specially designed, blocked primers, the rhAmpSeq system enables high levels of multiplexing of targeted assays in a single-tube, while significantly reducing the risk of primer-dimer formation and non-specific amplification events, which are both common problems with other amplicon-based sequencing methods. The result is an easy-to-use, elegant NGS library preparation solution with a low number of components and straightforward workflow steps to prepare DNA for sequencing on Illumina platforms.
