Evaluation of Next Generation Library Preparation using DNA Extracted from Dried Blood Spots using truXTRAC® DBS DNA kit

Dried Blood Spots (DBS) provide an easy and inexpensive way to collect and store peripheral blood specimens from infants, children nd adults.[1] The use of DBS allows for less invasive procedures for patients and easier shipment while still providing the ability to run molecular or clinical biochemical assays. This convenient method for the long term room-temperature storage of materials also minimizes storage and archival space. The truXTRAC DBS DNA kit is designed for controlled and efficient extraction of next-generation sequencing (NGS)-grade DNA from DBS samples using Adaptive Focused Acoustics® (AFA®). Covaris AFA enables sample rehydration while providing simultaneous cell lysis and controlled mechanical DNA shearing, resulting in high-yield, high-quality and NGS library preparation ready DNA.
