Default Doing PCR enrichment on PCR-free TruSeq lib?

I am making a contingency plan in case our next TruSeq (DNA) PCR-free libraries don't have sufficient yield. As far as I can tell the only difference between TruSeq PCR-free and TruSeq Nano is the DNA input amount and the lack of PCR enrichment at the end of the PCR-free protocol. So if we end up with too low yield it should be possible to do some PCR-cycles with the primers here: http://bioinformatics.cvr.ac.uk/blog...mer-sequences/ :
PCR Primer 1.0 (P5)
5 AATGATACGGCGACCACCGAGATCTACACTCTTTCCCTACACGA 3
and
PCR Primer 2.0 (P7)
5 CAAGCAGAAGACGGCATACGAGAT 3

Further, I was thinking we probably have these primers in leftovers from another kit, in the "PCR Primer Cocktail" from a TruSeq stranded mRNA kit. Can anyone confirm this? From the same kit we have only a small amount of PCR Master Mix, so we are thinking to use KAPA HiFi mix instead. Does anyone have an idea of the annealing temperature to use?

Your plan sounds perfect. You can probably find a Kapa library prep protocol on their website, so you can use the PCR conditions from that. I think they are something like 98 degree melt and 65 degree anneal. Also, you should be checking the concentration of your PCR-free libraries by QPCR, so the primers from that kit should work as well.

Thanks. But the primers aren't supplied separately in the qPCR kit we use.

I realized the KAPA documentation specifies the primer sequences in the mix, and they are shorter than those above, especially Primer 1. I don't understand why the P5 primer above is so long. I'll try the KAPA primers and conditions.
