Allele-level KIR typing by NGS


  • 8 different KIR genes
  • Single genes or combination kit
  • Compatible with LibrX and IndX


NGSgo®-AmpX KIR goes beyond presence/absence typing as it allows for genotyping at the allele level by NGS. NGSgo-AmpX KIR provides reagents for whole-gene amplification of 8 different KIR genes, available as single genes or as a complete kit with all 8 genes together. The combination kit includes GenDx-LongMix enzyme. NGSgo-AmpX KIR is compatible with NGSgo library preparation for Illumina and analysis in NGSengine. Available as RUO.


NGSgo-AmpX KIR enables whole-gene amplification of eight KIR genes from 5’ UTR to 3’ UTR, allowing for genotyping at high-to-allelic resolution.

NGSgo-AmpX KIR kit includes primers for amplification of the following genes, each amplified separately: KIR2DL1, KIR2DL2, KIR2DL3, KIR2DL4, KIR3DL1, KIR3DS1, KIR3DL2, and KIR3DL3.
