Secugen - Technical Solutions - DNA Spikes

Sequence Appearance.

  • Sharp, high-intensity, multicolored peaks that randomly appear in the sequence.

Possibles Causes.

  • The cause of spikes is not completely understood. One possible explanation is that an impurity or micro bubble passes through the camera view of the sequencing instrument, scattering light.


  • The surrounding sequence should still be correct and accurate if of good quality, please request your sample tobe rerun if necessary.
