Method Key

 
Demonstrated Method. This indicates that the method was developed for a sample preparation kit following a vendor’s published manual protocol. Each one is tested with scientifically relevant samples and has yielded results that meet the kit vendor’s specifications either in a customer lab (customer demonstrated) or in a Beckman Coulter Life Sciences Lab (Beckman demonstrated). Beckman Coulter makes no claims regarding the use or performance of these methods.
 
Illumina Qualified Methods, This indicates that Illumina’s analysis of libraries prepared with the Biomek-automated method has shown the libraries to perform comparably to those prepared manually. This method is not an Illumina product, and Illumina does not directly support this product. Illumina makes no representations or warranties with respect to this product.
