NGSelect DNA

NGSelect DNA

Exceptional flexibility in next-generation sequencing of DNA

NGSelect DNA offers easy access to Illumina or PacBio sequencing technologies in combination with pre-defined modules for pre-sequencing, genomic library preparation and BioIT analysis. The modular set-up shortens delivery times and lowers associated costs. Customers with their own in-house sequencing facility can easily outsource the sequencing workload at peak times for faster data generation with topmost quality. Standardized processes and use of most appropriate methods ensure reliable results and optimal performance.


The applications of NGSelect DNA are nearly limitless, but some of the most common uses of the product include:

  • De novo sequencing of genomes 
  • Bacterial re-sequencing
  • Detection of genomic variants, including single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and insertions and deletions (InDels)
  • Discovery of potential causative mutations and their effects on a protein level

Highlights of NGSelect DNA

  • Wide range of Illumina data packages or PacBio data packages
  • Shortened delivery times
  • Scalable data output, starting from 5M read packages
  • Individual combinations of pre-defined sequencing modules: DNA sequencing, genomic library preparation, pre-sequencing including DNA isolation, and bioinformatics analysis
