Element Elevate™ Library Prep Workflow

The Element Elevate Library Prep Workflow prepares linear libraries for sequencing on the Element AVITI System. A long adapter design coupled with Cloudbreak™ sequencing chemistry eliminates manual circularization and enables the choice of a PCR-free or PCR-plus protocol.

The option of mechanical or enzymatic library prep further enhances flexibility and supports end-to-end DNA library prep. The ability to pair the standalone adapter kit with a third-party kit potentially expands applications and enables custom library prep. Either way, the result is efficient recovery and consistent results.

Elevate Specifications

The Elevate Workflow supports three kits that supply reagents for mechanical or enzymatic library prep, adapters, and unique dual indexes (UDIs). The mechanical protocol starts with fragmented genomic DNA (gDNA). End repair and A-tailing keep the phosphate on the 5' end intact and ready the fragments for ligation, which adds adapters and UDIs. Starting with gDNA, the enzymatic protocol digests samples into fragments, then follows similar procedures.
