  • Nextera DNA Flex Library Prep Kit: Introduction

    Recorded Webinar (October 2019) | Illumina Technical Support invites you to join us for an introductory presentation on the Nextera DNA Flex library preparation kit. This webinar is geared towards new and intermediate users with a basic knowledge of next generation sequencing. This session covers sample to library workflow, and tips for a successful library prep.

  • Nextera DNA Flex for Enrichment: Introduction

    Recorded Webinar (November 2019) | Join us to learn more about our newest and most efficient enrichment workflow– Nextera DNA Flex for Enrichment. This webinar is for users that are interested in targeted sequencing using enrichment with fixed and custom gene panels, as well as for current users of Illumina enrichment workflows who wish to learn and compare the benefits Nextera DNA Flex for Enrichment offers. We will discuss the improved enrichment workflow used in Nextera DNA Flex for Enrichment, the unique features of Nextera DNA Flex for Enrichment, and useful tips for a successful library prep.  

    CORRECTION: There is an update for low minor allele frequency (somatic variant) detection. Illumina has validated only 1-plex pooling for somatic variant detection. If you would like to pool above 1-plex for this application, you will need to validate the performance of higher plexity pooling.

  • Library QC and Troubleshooting with the BioAnalyzer

    Upcoming Webinar | Does my library look good to sequence? What’s that peak? This webinar will address how to use the Agilent BioAnalyzer to check library quality prior to sequencing, and troubleshoot sample preparation. This webinar is geared toward new and intermediate users, and will cover how to identify features of an ideal library trace, recognize potential issues, and prevent potential issues.
