QIAseq 16S/ITS Smart Control

For use with QIAseq 16S/ITS Panels to monitor library construction steps and procedure-introduced contamination
  • Monitor library construction steps
  • Monitor introduction of potential contamination

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 Smart Control is a synthetic DNA fragment that allows users of the QIAseq 16S/ITS Panels to monitor library construction steps and any potential introduction of DNA contamination.
