Re: Autoseq Digest, Vol 38, Issue 2

David Reynolds-4
Hi Oliver,
Instead of, or in conjuction with an additive you can dilute the
fragments to get reasonable RFUs.  On our 3730 the PCR reactions were
typically diluted 40 to 120 fold.  We would titrate a few samples per
marker at 40, 80 and 120 fold, then pick the best dilution for the
rest of the study.
Regards,
Dave
