What does the PG-Seq™ kit 2.0 include?
The PG-Seq™ kit 2.0 includes WGA reagents, library preparation reagents including 96 unique barcodes and purification beads and PG-Find™ software.
How many reactions do I get in a single PG-Seq™ kit 2.0
What is the maximum throughput for the PG-Seq™ kit 2.0?
Does the PG-Seq™ kit 2.0 include primers for the TSE protocol?
No, customers are required to supply their own primer sets.
Can the PG-Seq™ kit 2.0 amplify day 3 biopsies and polar bodies?
How long does it take to process from WGA to sequencer (lab time) for 24, 48 and 96 samples?
24 samples: ~7 hours | 48 samples: ~7.5 hours | 96 samples: ~9.5 hours
How long does the sequencing time take for the v3 and v2 chemistry Illumina® MiSeq® reagent kits?
V3 1×75 cycle: ~ 9 hours | V2 1×75 cycle: ~5 hours
Does the sequencer reagent kit come with the PG-Seq™ kit 2.0?
No, this needs to be purchased from Illumina® or an Illumina® distributor.
What reagent kits do I need for the sequencer?
Illumina® MiSeq® v3 150 cycle kit (MS-102-3001) | Illumina® MiSeq® v2 Micro 300 cycle kit (MS-103-1002)
Illumina® MiniSeq® High output 75 cycle kit (FC-420-1001)
Can I use the PG-Find™ software to view point mutations and SNPs?
No, PerkinElmer recommends using IGV software to view point mutations and SNPs.
What equipment do I need for the PG-Seq™ kit 2.0?
Standard molecular biology equipment and a thermocycler with a programmable ramp rate (please also refer to the kit manual for more information).
At what temperature do I store the kit components?
WGA reagents should be stored at -20°C in the clean room. Library preparation reagents (including the adaptor plate) should be stored at -20°C in the general lab with purification beads stored at 4°C in the general lab. Resuspension buffer & H2O stored at room temperature.
What buffer should I use to transfer the biopsy in and what size tubes shall I use?
Recommended cell transfer buffers include 10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0) (no EDTA) and PBS (Mg2+, Ca2+ free and BSA free) in 0.2 ml or 0.5 ml PCR tubes.
kit 2.0 comes with WGA and library preparation reagents in a 96-reaction kit and the PG-Find™
The PG-Seq™ kit 2.0 also comes in an automation version with the library preparation reagents pre-plated ready to use on the Sciclone® G3 NGSx workstation.
The shelf life of all reagents is 6 months when stored properly at -20°C. The PG-Seq™ kit 2.0 ships on dry ice.
