  • Amplicon normalization

    I came across this this site today:
    Axygen products and solutions for genomics applications are offered through a wide portfolio of tools.


    And was wondering if anyone has tried this AxyPrep Mag PCR Normalizer kit for normalizing amplicons prior to pooling for sequencing? If so, how'd it go? It seems simple and relatively straightforward, so I'm wondering why I've never heard of it before. (Or any of their other kits for that matter.)

    What are people doing anyway to normalize a large number of amplicons prior to pooling and sequencing? Ampure beads/filter plate -> PicoGreen -> dilutions?

    We still use SequalPrep normalization by Invitrogen. We haven't used the AxyPrep kit yet though.

      Since its been over a year this question was originally asked, I would like to bring this topic back and see if someone has had good/bad experience with these normalization beads? I think it would be a great option to bypass all the onerous normalization post PCR/barcoding for sequencning on either PGM or Illumina.

      Thoughts?

        No experience with this, but I am curious how this works. I've deen doing exomes on SOLiD ald plan to do some more, So maybe this could be a good way to multiplex samples before the exome enrichment step? It would save a lot of time and money to use this instead of qpcr quant....

        Can anyone share their experience with either Axy or other brands' normalization kits?

          Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
          by seqadmin


          Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

          Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
          by seqadmin


          Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
