How important is the quality of my DNA or RNA?

DNA/RNA quality is essential for a successful Nanopore sequencing experiment.

It is important to check the input DNA/RNA for quality before beginning library preparation.

Low molecular weight, incorrectly quantified, and/or contaminated input samples can have a significant impact on the sequencing performance.

For more information, please refer to: - Input DNA/RNA QC protocol. - Contaminants information page. - Extraction protocols section on the Nanopore Community.
