The 96-well plate provides a ready-to-use format for indexing, making your workflow easier and faster, while eliminating the risk of pipetting incorrect index combinations. The familiar dual indices are supplied as a single reaction per well, each well containing a unique combination.
Index Primer Plate U01 96 Unique Dual Indexes
Four different index plates are available, each containing unique index combinations. Combining all four plates allows for processing of 384 samples in a single run. The plates can be used for both manual pipetting and in automated workflows.
Using the unique dual indexing strategy will make sure that your libraries will sequence and demultiplex with the highest accuracy across all Illumina sequencing platforms.
When preparing libraries for multiplexing, Illumina encourages customers to use unique dual indexing (UDI) whenever possible.
