QIAseq 16S/ITS Region Panels

For next-generation sequencing-based Sample to Insight profiling of bacterial and fungal communities
  • Interrogate specific bacterial 16S rRNA gene variable regions and fungal ITS regions
  • "Phased primers" increase base and read quality
  • Low-bioburden reagents minimize background contamination
  • DNA input as low as 1 pg to profile low-biomass samples

QIAseq 16S/ITS Panels are the Sample to Insight solution for robust profiling of bacterial and fungal communities. The panels have been developed for sequencing 16S rRNA and ITS regions on Illumina platforms. Unlike other solutions, QIAseq 16S/ITS Panels use "phased primers" to increase the quality of reads and base calling, and eliminate the need for PhiX spike-in. In addition, QIAseq 16S/ITS Panels incorporate low-bioburden reagents to decrease background contamination, interrogate all 16S rRNA variable regions and allow low DNA input, enabling the analysis of low-biomass samples.

The QIAseq 16S/ITS Region Panels, when combined with any of the QIAseq 16S/ITS Index Kits, include all required reagents to produce libraries from extracted DNA. Region panels can be configured to target 1, 2 or 3 16S variable regions and/or ITS. To configure your QIAseq 16S/ITS Region Panel, choose a product on the "Ordering Information" tab and click "Configure".
