The NEBNext® Fast DNA Library Prep Set for Ion Torrent™ contains enzymes and buffers in convenient master mix formulations that are ideally suited for sample preparation for next-generation sequencing on the Ion Torrent Sequencer (Life Technologies, Inc.). Each of these components must pass rigorous quality control standards and are lot controlled, both individually and as a set of reagents.
DNA Library Preparation Workflow for Ion Torrent
Representative Results from Libraries Constructed Using NEBNext for Ion Torrent 
0.5 µg of DNA from 3 different genomes with varying GC content were used to construct 200 bp and 400 bp libraries using the NEBNext Fast DNA Fragmentation and Library Prep Set for Ion Torrent, analyzed by the Agilent® Bioanalyzer®.
Representative Ion Torrent Run Report
A typical Ion Torrent run report for libraries made from E. coli (K12 MG1655 strain) genomic DNA using NEBNext Fast DNA Fragmentation & Library Prep Set for Ion Torrent. A. Alignment Summary. 72 Mb of data was generated, with an average genome coverage of 15.5 X, from approximately 0.5 Million 200 bp reads. B. Read length histogram from 200 bp run.

Functional Validation
Each set of reagents is functionally validated together through construction and sequencing of a DNA library on the Ion Torrent platform.

Lot Control

The lots provided are managed separately and qualified by additional functional validation. Individual reagents undergo standard enzyme activity and quality control assays, and also meet stringent criteria in the additional quality controls listed on each individual component page
