Best Practices

  • When thawing the reagent cartridge in the water bath, use only enough water to submerge the base of cartridge, making sure that the water line does not reach the clear plastic cover on the cartridge.
  • Make sure that all reagents are thoroughly thawed before loading the reagent cartridge onto the instrument.
  • After loading your samples onto the reagent cartridge, proceed directly to setting up your run on the MiSeq.
