When should I perform preamplification prior to SNP genotyping on the Fluidigm platform?

Preamplification can be used to improve data quality when there is:

  • Low and/or varied sample concentration or low copy numbers due to large genome size.
  • Low sample quality.
  • Carryover of inhibitory compounds from DNA extraction (more common for plant species).
