What shearing methods are available for gDNA fragmentation?

What shearing methods are available for gDNA fragmentation?

Mechanical shearing of sample inputs using Covaris g-TUBEs is an optional step before the library preparation.

Enzymatic shearing is an integral step in our Rapid approach, see the technical document for more details.

We provide guidance and information on additional shearing methods that have been validated by our teams in our Optional fragmentation of gDNA page.

We recommend always following the guidance in our protocols for the correct practice when using our products.
