How much xGen UDI-UMI Adapters should I use for library prep?

The amount of xGen UDI-UMI Adapters you use depends on the library prep workflow and the amount of starting sample used to perform library prep. We recommend checking your specific protocol for the optimal amount of adapter to use.

For the Lotus DNA Library Prep Kit, use 4 µL of xGen UDI-UMI Adapters (diluted according to the table below) for the ligation reaction.
