16S Amplicon Sequencing
16S amplicon sequencing is a popular, established sequencing method that assesses the 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene to identify and quantify the bacterial or fungal composition of a community. The Element AVITI™ System elevates the accuracy and economy of 16S amplicon sequencing:
- Cost-effective sequencing with a low PhiX spike-in and high library plexity
- High-accuracy results that span V1–V3, V3–V4, or full-length 16S amplicons
- Both short read and synthetic long read options on one system
AVITI 2 x 300 sequencing kits can sequence 600+ bp inserts with high end-to-end read quality. Cost-effective and economical, the kits improve sample characterization with more usable amplicon reads. Dedicate more data to your science, and waste fewer reads on PhiX.
