Preparation of Adaptor Ligated DNA - NEBNext Fast DNA Fragmentation & Library Prep Set for Ion Torrent (E6285)


  1. Add the following to the microfuge tube:
      For 10 ng   For 100 ng – 1 μg
    Bst DNA Polymerase, Large Fragment 1 µl 1 µl
    Sterile H2O 9 µl 1 µl
    T4 DNA Ligase Buffer for Ion Torrent 4 µl 4 µl
    NEBNext DNALibrary Adaptors for Ion Torrent 2 µl 10 µl
    T4 DNA Ligase 4 µl 4 µl
    Total volume 20 µl 20 µl

  2. The total volume in the microfuge tube should be 40 μl. Mix the contents by pipetting up and down several times.

  3. Incubate in a thermal cycler for 15 minutes at 25°C, followed by 5 minutes at 65°C, hold at 4°C.

  4. Add 5 μl Stop Buffer, vortex and pulse-spin.

If performing bead based size selection, proceed directly to size selection using AMPure XP Beads. If using E-Gel or Agarose gel for size selection, proceed to Cleanup of Adaptor Ligated DNA before proceeding to gel based size selection.
