When it comes to whole genome sequencing (WGS), customers are reporting a success rate of greater than 95% when utilizing Mawi DNA’s iSWAB-DNA sample collection devices.
Here’s what’s different and why it matters.
Bacterial DNA in WGS leads to reduced sequencing coverage, false positive variations, bias in gene expression analysis and difficulty in identifying and removing contaminants.
iSWAB-DNA is the only DNA collection device on the market that controls
bacterial DNA content in collected samples.
More Intact high molecular weight dsDNA
The more intact dsDNA and/or methyl groups you have for library construction, the easier it is to re-assemble the genome sequence.
Sample collection matters. Unlike existing sample collection products that utilize alcohol or other toxic preservatives that reduce DNA quality, iSWAB-DNA uses a gentle, non toxic lysis buffer that enables stabilization of larger (approx. 40kb+) fragments of dsDNA with intact methyl groups.
One Last Thing.
Sequencing is a results-driven application. You may never get a second chance to make a first impression with a new client. Realize significant cost savings for the whole operation.
