Below are the recommended minimum PCR cycles for direct sequencing of libraries prepared from high-quality genomic DNA for each xGen DNA Library Prep Kits.
When using indexing primer kits, a minimum number of 3 PCR cycles is required to complete adapter sequences, irrespective of whether enough library is available after ligation.
For samples of compromised quality, additional cycles may be required.
