Library Preparation

Preparation of sequencing libraries for Illumina sequencing systems such as the HiScanSQ can be carried out using different technologies i.e. Illumina TruSeq DNA or RNA sample prep kits or equivalent kits supplied by other vendors. For example, custom or exome target enrichment strategies can be applied for resequencing projects. Sample requirements for different library preparation methods are outlined under Project Design.

Our Core Facility runs several devices required for the preparation of high-quality sequencing libraries like a Qubit® fluorometer, a NanoPhotometer®, an Experion automated electrophoresis system or the Caliper LapChip® GX system for higher sample throughput.
