  • Second Strand cDNA Synthesis

    For use with NEBNext® mRNA Library Prep Reagent Set for Illumina® (E6100) and NEBNext® mRNA Library Prep Master Mix Set for Illumina® (E6110).


    1. Add 48 μl Nuclease-Free Water to the First Strand Synthesis reaction.
    2. To the reaction then add:
      10X Second Strand Synthesis Reaction Buffer: 8 μl
      Second Strand Synthesis Enzyme Mix: 4 μl
      Total volume: 80 μl
    3. Mix thoroughly by gentle pipetting.
    4. Incubate in a thermal cycler for 2.5 hours at 16°C.
    5. Purify cDNA using a PCR column purification kit, purifying the sample on one column and eluting in 50 μl sterile water or elution buffer.
