ForenSeq mtDNA Whole Genome Kit

The ForenSeq mtDNA Whole Genome Kit offers a convenient and cost-effective library prep for sequencing the whole mitochondrial genome (mtGenome) with minimal DNA input and exceptional data recovery. Leveraging proven ForenSeq chemistry, the kit produces expanded data sets that promote population studies or provide additional resolution for severely degraded samples. Moreover, this solution has the lowest list price of any commercial whole genome assay. Multiplexing capability further boosts operational efficiency without increases to costs or time.
