  • Ampure magnetic bead purification -- how does it work ?

    Hi I'm new in using NGS especially the GS Junior.
    I prepaired a library using self designed primers. After amplification there's a purification step by magnetic beads. I understand the basics but not every reaction is clear to me. My main questions are: Why do they say that its equal using 10µl library or fewer and add some water. Doesn't this change my purification result?
    In the patent of this technique the salt concentration is mentioned to influence the results. Why and what does salt do. If I add water, my salt concentration is reduced isn't it? Have to explaine this method in my thesis.
    Could you please try to explain the chemical background to me.

    Thanking you in anticipation!
    Regards Christine90

    There are plenty of threads about the mechanism...please
    search, especially if it's for your thesis!

      Someone recently asked me, “how do SPRI beads work” and I realized I was not completely sure so I went to find out. My lab uses kits. Lots...

        Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
        by seqadmin




        The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

        Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
        by seqadmin


        In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
