Can I use small fragments of DNA with the Rapid Sequencing Kit?
Can I use small fragments of DNA with the Rapid Sequencing Kit?
Updated over a week ago

The rapid kits use transposase-based chemistry which will randomly cleave the double-stranded DNA as described in this technical document.

Therefore, we recommend using input DNA that is >30kb. Using shorter DNA will lead to hyper fragmentation, so a shorter read length is expected.
