  • Bioanalyzer problem-rna ladder 600 nano

    Hello everybody!
    I have a question for you.
    Do you ever seen a ladder (RNA 6000 nano) like this? What can be the causes?
    I have prepared a fresh gel-dye mix and the electrodes of the instrument have been cleaned last week, no other analysis was made in this period.
    The gel matrix, the RNA dye concentrate solution and the ladder are expired two months ago, it can be this the problem?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Arianna Cerana

    I've used expired reagents before without any issues, but it still could technically be the issue. Most of the issues I've had were from not heat denaturing properly or issues during the dye mix.

      Hello Ben3, thanks for your answer!!
      When you say "not denaturing properly", you mean the ladder right?
      Maybe I can denature it another time?

      Thank you so much for the help

        Arianna Cerana. Yes, I've had issues with denaturing the ladder in the past. I think it may have been the thermocycler I used. But most of my issues were with mixing the dye. They may not be the issues, but I figured I would share in case it was. Best of luck!

          Thank you so much!!
          I can prepare a new gel-dye mix and see what happens.
          Thanks again for the support and the help!!

            A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
            by seqadmin

            ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

            Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
            by seqadmin
            Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

            The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes

            AVITI from Element Biosciences: Latest Sequencing Technologies—Part 6
            by seqadmin
            Element Biosciences made its sequencing market debut this year when it released AVITI, its first sequencer. The AVITI System uses avidity sequencing, a novel sequencing chemistry that delivers higher quality data, decreases cycle times, and requires lower reagent concentrations. This new instrument reportedly features lower operating and start-up costs while maintaining quality sequencing.

            Read type and length
            AVITI is a short-read benchtop sequencer that also offers an innovative...
