  • REM e for more than two-lane plates

    Hi,

    I previously started a thread on the REM e module for emPCR Enrichment here: http://seqanswers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2916, but decided to start a new for this question.

    We now have the REM e running on the Hamilton, and it seems to work. However, we had to go through a lot of rounds with 454/Hamilton to get the protocols for 4-lane, 8-lane and 16-lane plates installed. We have been told nobody uses the REM e for 16-lane plates. Is this true? Are we the only crazy ones who are still doing this? Or rather, were doing this (we just decided to run 8 lanes max).

    flx,

    We don't have a REM e but we completely stopped doing 16 region gaskets simply for practical reasons. They leak terribly and the loss of usable picotiter plate wells is simply too great. We will occasionally do 8 region runs for a submitter doing amplicons (he submits 8 multiplexed pools at a time) but otherwise stick to 4 or 2 region runs, using multiplexing to combine more samples. Multiplexing is far more efficient than running the multiple region gaskets.

      Sure, we mulitiplex. But the 16 lanes were for amplicons, just like your 8 lane runs. We just informed our biggest user of 16 lane runs, and they are a bit pissed because of the necessary redesign we now force upon them in the middle of their data collection. Need to talk to them...

      But leaky 16 lane gaskets is not something we experience...

        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...
