Application Note: The Importance of Pure Water for Next-Generation Sequencing
12 July 2017
Water is used throughout the next-generation sequencing (NGS) workflow, from DNA fragmentation to sequencing runs and instrument cleaning. Using the appropriate water quality for each step is essential in eliminating the risk of water contaminants interfering with nucleic acids and the many enzymatic reactions performed in this process, also helping to prevent instrument contamination. This application note discusses how a water purification system can provide laboratories with high-quality water tailored to meet all their specific needs.
