Tech Note – Genomic DNA fragmentation using Covaris g-Tubes

20th May 2024  -  Categories: Research & Development

Covaris g-Tubes can be used to fragment DNA and are recommended for use in creating Oxford Nanopore (ONT) libraries. The volumes and DNA concentration typically used for ONT libraries are outside the range of the example data provided by Covaris. Here, we tested using the volumes and concentrations appropriate for our requirements.
