MiSeq transcriptome [load]

Hi,

We're doing a quick & dirty transcriptome for a low-complexity tissue using a single library on a MiSeq; time/cost are a factor. The run is a single sample RNA-Seq; V2 reagent; 2x150 PE. ...

Replacement for BiomekFX

Hello,

We currently have a BiomekFX, but it's getting to be near EOL for support/add-ons. We're wondering what people are using? I will NOT buy Perkin-Elmer; they're overpriced and...

Bead removal of <1000 bp from LARGE fragments

Hi,

Trying to prep some very large fragment libraries (>50 kbp), and I've isolated the gDNA using a BluePippin, but when I use beads (Promega ProNex) to clean up, or rather, remove the small...

Okay, I guess it's just that the "cost per base" is significantly higher than the 3000/4000 series; that's why we're seeing a reduction in availability. It's too bad because they don't suffer from...

Is the HiSeq2500 being phased out? In other words, has it reached EOL and/or is Illumina ceasing to provide supply reagents?

Thanks,
Andor
