    Hi, How was this error fixed?

    This run is borderline overclustered (as I recollect for NextSeq optimal cluster density is 170-220 K cluster/mm^2).

    Since there is nothing to lose at this time contact tech support and see what they say. You may have to eat the cost on this one and re-run.

    The cluster density for the four lanes range from 0-250k/mm2.

    The lanes:
    Lane 1: 235 ±41
    Lane 2: 237 ±38
    Lane 3: 212 ±56
    Lane 4: 230 ±35

    I hope this helps.

    What was the cluster density for this run?

    If the run was borderline overclustered to begin with, it is possible that sequencer lost the ability to distinguish the clusters over time (they become fatter). There is also the possibility of this being some sort of a hardware issue.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes I will do that - unfortunately since its a weekend they cannot reply.

    I was thinking - if clusters are not formed in those two particular areas, would the cameras be disabled? My pooled library concentration was sufficient, so I did not anticipate any problems. Also, if the cluster density is low then I am not sure how QC would be affected..

    Many thanks

    Probably. You should contact Illumina tech support. They can take a look at your sequencer remotely to diagnose the problem.

    If your instrument is not directly accessible over the network then you will need to send them some diagnostic files.

    Yes, now it has finished and the QC is only 15.2.

    The machine also has a warning message on two of the lanes:

    camera disabled:failed to detect clusters


    Does this mean that the cameras are not working properly?

    Thanks

    started a topic Low QC scores?

    Low QC scores?

    I have just set up my very first sequencing experiment on the Next-Seq 500. It is now 45 cycles into PE sequencing, however it seems that my QC scores are a bit low. I only have a % >= Q30%: 25.2%

    I have around:
    280 million reads in the QC 10 bin.
    25 million in the QC 20 bin
    8 million in the QC 25 bin
    65 million in QC 30 bin
    44 million in QC 35 bin.

    Is this a bad result? Apologies for my stupidness, just was wondering whether data could be salvaged from this?

    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...
