Sending your samples the right way
Take 5 µl template DNA with either of following concentration:
- Purified plasmid DNA:
80 - 100 ng/µl
- Purified PCR products:
150-300 bp: 2 ng/µl
300-1000 bp: 12 ng/µl
>1000 bp: 25 ng/µl
Add 5 µl of primer with a concentration of 5 µM (5 pmol/µl)
Please send total sample amount of 10 µl in 1,5 ml tubes
To ensure the best possible quality of sequence data, the total volume of the sample should not be less than 10 µl.
We recommend measuring the DNA concentration on an agarose gel.
- The melting temperature (TM ) of the primer should be between 52° and 58°C and the length should be between 17 – 19bp. Ideally, the GC content of an 17mer should be 10 G+C; for an 18mer 8 – 9 G+C and for a 19mer 7 – 9 G+C.
- G or C should be at the 3’ end, but not more than 3 Gs or Cs.
- The primer sequence should be a good mix of all 4 nucleotides with no more than 4 identical bases in a row (AAAA or GGGG)
