Why are there no peaks in my Bioanalyzer/TapeStation results?
If you see no peaks or enrichment in your Bioanalyzer/TapeStation traces, consider the following:
Are you analyzing CUT&RUN DNA yields are purified sequencing libraries?
- Remember, Bioanalyzer/TapeStation analysis is only to be conducted on prepared sequencing libraries and NOT raw CUT&RUN DNA.
- If you are analyzing sequencing libraries, read below.
Reasons for no peaks in traces derived from CUT&RUN libraries include:
- Low CUT&RUN yields and/or low inputs for library prep. See this article for guidance.
- Sub-optimal library prep technique. Use the EpiCypher CUTANA CUT&RUN Library Prep Kit (EpiCypher 14-1001 & 14-1002), specifically developed for CUT&RUN
