Raw data sorting according to Illumina Index read is included. Used index type (single-indexed or dual-indexed) and corresponding index sequences have to be provided prior to project start.
Raw data sorting according to customer specific tags at read start can be offered at additional costs. We highly recommend to avoid the “in-line” barcoding strategy and use the Illumina index system instead (i.e. the barcodes are read in a separate read and do not interfere with cluster registration). It is important to ensure that the base composition of the indices is balanced to optimise the ability of the image analysis software to distinguish signals.
