Re-fueling Flow Cells

Note: This is only relevant for our Kit 9 chemistry used with R9.4.1 flow cells

A reduction in speed and Qscore may be observed during your sequencing run while live-basecalling is on.

In such cases, sequencing speed can be recovered by refueling the flow cell. This will replenish the fuel for the motor protein using Flush Buffer (FB) from the Flow Cell Priming Kit (EXP-FLP002).

Please refer here for the full protocol and more details on refueling flow cells.
