Quick Tips - What size range do I choose for my DNA fragmentation?

This video describes some things to take into consideration when deciding on a size range for your DNA fragmentation.


Customers often ask “What size range should I choose for my DNA fragmentation?”, and that really depends on the read length that you are trying to sequence.

We recommend that you run your sample on a bioanalyzer or a similar instrument. Once you know the size you can choose the size selection protocol from our manual. It is important to note that our adaptors and primers do add length to the fragments.
