Question: What concentration should I load my libraries at for sequencing?
Answer: Our recommendations for the optimal loading concentration, as well as pooling considerations, are listed in the sequencing section of each assay User Guide. Please ensure that the correct guide is used for the assay. Examples are shared below:
Single Cell Gene Expression (v3.1)
Single Cell Immune Profiling (5’ v2)
Single Cell ATAC and Single Cell Multiome ATAC & Gene Expression
Spatial Gene Expression (Fresh Frozen and FFPE)
Library concentration (nM or pM) should be determined by Kapa Library quantification kit (part no. KK4824) and size corrected using fragment analysis. For further details, please see: Why do I need to use qPCR to quantify my final library?
While these loading concentrations have worked well in-house, there may be some optimization required for inherent differences between sequencers. We recommend working with Illumina Technical Support to optimize cluster density.
