NGS Success - Hybridisation Temperature Optimisation

View next generation sequencing (NGS) tips for the hybridisation temperature optimisation:

  • Washes must be pre-warmed as per the handbook. 
  • Test thermocyclers and consumables to be used during hybridisation and wash steps if using alternatives to minimise evaporation. Evaporation of the wash buffers alters the ratio of buffer:sample. This may lead to less efficient washing of the DNA hybridised to the streptavidin beads.
