The KAPA Universal Adapter is a short (truncated) adapter for next-generation sequencing (NGS) on Illumina platforms. It carries T-overhangs and ligates to the library fragments after the A-tailing step. Sample barcodes are incorporated during the following library amplification step prior to target enrichment.
This Roche Sequencing product is part of the validated KAPA HyperCap workflow, a streamlined, automation-friendly solution that integrates KAPA’s high-efficiency DNA library preparation kits with the KAPA Target Enrichment Probes (Exome and Custom). It includes KAPA Universal Adapters, KAPA UDI Primer Mixes, KAPA Universal Enhancing Oligos and the KAPA HyperCapture Bead kit, to ensure the best performance when combined with KAPA Target Enrichment Probes.
