I want to gel purify my samples. Do you have any recommendations?

For gel purification of Small RNA-Seq libraries, we recommend performing the size selection on the lane mix using 3 % agarose gels stained with EtBr.

  • Prepare an equimolar lane mix (calculated from the Bioanalyzer in the range from 135 – 150 bp, i.e., the miRNA fraction), load the lane mix, and run the agarose + EtBr gel in TBE for 2 hours at 80 V.

  • Excise the desired band(s) and avoid recovering the ~120 bp linker-linker artifacts that contain no insert. For final gel extraction, any commercially available gel extraction kit can be used.
