Catalog/Reference Numbers for IDT for Illumina DNA/RNA UD and Illumina DNA/RNA UD Indexes
For Illumina consumables, there are reference (ref) numbers at the kit, box, and tube/component levels. Orders are placed using the kit level catalog numbers. A single kit can contain multiple boxes, which in turn can contain multiple tubes or components. To simplify the purchasing experience, the Illumina website only displays the orderable kit reference or catalog numbers.
Below are the kit (blue), box (red), and component (black) reference numbers for the following Illumina index kits:
- IDT for Illumina DNA/RNA UD Indexes Sets A-D, Tagmentation
- IDT for Illumina RNA UD Indexes Sets A-D, Ligation
- Illumina DNA/RNA UD Indexes Sets A-D, Tagmentation
- Illumina RNA UD Indexes Sets A-D, Ligation
The "DNA/RNA…Tagmentation" kits include a single index plate each; whereas, the "RNA…Ligation" kits include the same respective index plate and also include an anchor plate. Note that the IDT for Illumina DNA/RNA UD Indexes Sets A-D (20027213, 20027214, 20042666, 20042667) have been announced to be obsolesced, and the last order date for these kits is January 30, 2025, as announced in Product Obsolescence Notice (PON) 2023-1440. Illumina recommends ordering the new Illumina DNA/RNA UD Indexes Sets A-D if possible (20091654, 20091656, 20091658, 20091660).
