Overview
Overview
Introduction
TruSeq Custom Amplicon Library Preparation (TSCA) allows researchers to sequence
targeted regions of the genome spanning upwards of 600 kb with up to 1,536 amplicons in
a single multiplex reaction. This highly targeted approach enables a wide range of
applications for discovering, validating, and screening genetic variants in a rapid and
efficient manner. TSCA enables a high level of multiplexing by generating up to 1,536
amplicons within a single reaction and integrated indices support sequencing up to 96
samples per MiSeq run. TSCA leverages the long paired-end read capability, speed, and
high data quality of the MiSeq System.

Input DNA Quantitation
Illumina recommends quantifying the starting genomic material. Quantify the starting
genomic material using a fluorescence-based quantification method, such as PicoGreen,
rather than a UV-spectrometer-based method. Fluorescence-based methods, which employ
a double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) specific dye, specifically and accurately quantitate
dsDNA even in the presence of many common contaminants. In contrast, UV spectrometer
methods based on 260 OD readings are prone to overestimating DNA concentrations due
to the presence of RNA and other contaminants commonly found in gDNA preparations.
Assessing DNA Quality
The Illumina FFPE QC Kit is recommended to determine if FFPE DNA is of sufficient
quality for use in with the TruSeq Custom Amplicon Library Preparation. In addition, the
ratio of absorbance at 260 nm to absorbance at 280 nm is used as an indication of sample
purity. This protocol is optimized for DNA with absorbance ratio values of 1.8–2.0.

Extension-Ligation of Bound Oligos
This process connects the hybridized upstream and downstream oligos. A DNA
polymerase extends from the upstream oligo through the targeted region, followed by
ligation to the 5’ end of the downstream oligo using a DNA ligase. The extension-ligation
results in the formation of products containing the targeted regions of interest flanked by
sequences required for amplification.

1
Prepare fresh 0.1N NaOH.
2
Remove LNA1 from -15°C to -25°C storage and bring to room temperature. Use a 20°C
to 25°C water bath as needed.
NOTE
LNA1 might form visible precipitates or crystals. Before use, vortex vigorously, and
then hold the tube in front of a light and visually inspect to make sure that all precipitate
has dissolved.
3
Remove LNB1 and LNW1 from 2°C to 8°C storage and bring to room temperature.
Use a 20°C to 25°C water bath as needed.
4
Vigorously vortex LNB1 for at least 1 minute with intermittent inversion until the
beads are well-resuspended and no pellet is found at the bottom of the tube when the
tube is inverted.
Procedure
1
For 96 samples, add 4.4 ml of LNA1 to a fresh 15 ml conical tube.
2
Use a P1000 pipette set to 1000 µl to resuspend LNB1 thoroughly by pipetting up and
down 15–20 times, until the bead pellet at the bottom is resuspended.
NOTE
It is critical to completely resuspend the LNB1 bead pellet at the bottom of the tube. The
use of a P1000 ensures that the beads are homogeneously resuspended and that there is
no bead mass at the bottom of the tube. Resuspension is essential for achieving
consistent cluster density on the flow cell.
3
30
Immediately after LNB1 is thoroughly resuspended, use a P1000 pipette to transfer
800 µl of LNB1 to the 15 ml conical tube containing LNA1. Mix well by inverting the
Part # 15027983 Rev. C
NOTE
If you do not plan to use full tubes for 96 samples, a P1000 set to 1000 µl is required to
resuspend the beads completely in step 2. Mix only the required amounts of LNA1 and
LNB1 for the current experiment. Never use a P200 pipette to handle LNB1. Store the
remaining LNA1 and LNB1 separately at their respective recommended temperatures.
To preserve stability, never freeze LNB1 beads or mix with LNA1 if not used
immediately.
4
Using a multichannel pipette, add 45 µl of the combined LNA1/LNB1 to each well of
the LNP plate containing libraries. Changing tips between columns is not required if
you use care to avoid cross-contamination.
5
Seal the LNP plate with a Microseal 'B' adhesive seal.
6
Shake the LNP plate on a microplate shaker at 1,800 rpm for 30 minutes.
NOTE
The 30 minute incubation is critical for proper library normalization. Incubations of
greater or less than 30 minutes affect library representation and cluster density.
7
Place the plate on a magnetic stand for 2 minutes or until the supernatant has cleared.
8
With the LNP plate on the magnetic stand, use a multichannel pipette set to 80 µl to
remove the supernatant and then discard in an appropriate hazardous waste
container.
NOTE
If any beads are inadvertently aspirated into the tips, dispense the beads back to the
plate and let the plate rest for 2 minutes or until the supernatant has cleared.
9
Remove the LNP plate from the magnetic stand and wash the beads with LNW1, as
follows:

the bead mix into a trough and use it immediately in the next step.
Protocol
e
Carefully remove and discard the supernatant in an appropriate hazardous waste
container.
10 Remove the LNP plate from the magnetic stand and repeat the wash with LNW1, as
follows:
a Using a multichannel pipette, add 45 µl of LNW1 to each well.
Changing tips between columns is not required if you use care to avoid crosscontamination.
b Seal the LNP plate with a Microseal 'B' adhesive seal.
c Shake the LNP plate on a microplate shaker at 1,800 rpm for 5 minutes.
d Place the plate on the magnetic stand for 2 minutes or until the supernatant has
cleared.
e Carefully remove and discard the supernatant in an appropriate hazardous waste
container.
f Use a P20 multichannel pipette to remove excess LNW1.
NOTE
Using a P20 multichannel to remove residual LNW1 is important to avoid reagent
carryover into the storage buffer, and to reduce volume variability, which would affect
library normalization.
11 Remove the LNP plate from the magnetic stand and add 30 µl of 0.1 N NaOH (less
than a week old) to each well to elute the sample.
12 Seal the LNP plate with a Microseal 'B' adhesive seal.
13 Shake the LNP plate on a microplate shaker at 1,800 rpm for 5 minutes.
14 During the 5 minute elution, apply the SGP (Storage Plate) barcode plate sticker to a
new 96-well PCR plate.
15 Add 30 µl LNS2 to each well to be used in the SGP plate.
16 After the 5 minute elution, make sure that all samples in the LNP plate are
resuspended completely. If the samples are not resuspended, gently pipette up and
down or lightly tap the plate on the bench to resuspend the beads. Then shake for
another 5 minutes.
17 Place the LNP plate on the magnetic stand for 2 minutes or until the liquid is clear.
18 Using a multichannel pipette set to 30 µl, transfer the supernatant from the LNP plate
to the SGP plate. Change tips between samples to avoid cross-contamination.

19 Seal the SGP plate with Microseal 'B' and then centrifuge to 1,000 × g for 1 minute.
NOTE
The final library pool consists of single-stranded DNA, which does not resolve well on
an agarose gel or Bioanalyzer chip. qPCR can be used for quality control if desired. For
more information, please see the Sequencing Library qPCR Quantification Guide.
SAFE STOPPING POINT
If you do not plan to proceed to Library Pooling and MiSeq Sample Loading and subsequent
sequencing on the MiSeq, store the sealed SGP plate at -15°C to -25°C.

If the SGP plate was stored frozen, mix each library to be sequenced by pipetting up
and down 3–5 times using a P200 multichannel pipette. Change tips between samples.
6
Using a P20 multichannel pipette, transfer 5 µl of each library to be sequenced from the
SGP plate, column by column, to a PCR eight-tube strip. Change tips after each column
to avoid cross-contamination. Seal SGP with Microseal 'B' and set aside.

Protocol
NOTE
After use, store the sealed SGP plate at -15°C to -25°C.
7
Combine and transfer the contents of the PCR eight-tube strip into the PAL tube. Mix
PAL well.
8
Apply the DAL (Diluted Amplicon Library) barcode sticker to a fresh Eppendorf tube.
9
Create DAL by combining the volumes of HT1 and PAL indicated in Table 3 based on
your MiSeq Reagent Kit version. Upon transferring PAL, using the same tip, pipette up
and down 3–5 time to rinse the tip and ensure complete transfer.
NOTE
Volumes for diluting PAL with HT1 were established using recommended equipment
(e.g., plate shaker calibrated for shaking speed). Typical laboratory conditions (e.g., 20°C
to 25°C) were strictly followed during the normalization procedure. If cluster density is
too high or too low, adjust the dilution ratio to better suit the equipment, temperature,
and handling in your laboratory after validation.

10 Mix DAL by vortexing the tube at top speed.
NOTE
If you would like to save the remaining PAL for future use, store the PAL tube at -15°C
to -25°C.
Make sure that the diluted library DAL is freshly prepared and used immediately for
MiSeq loading. Storage of the DAL results in a significant reduction of cluster density.
11 Using a heat block, incubate the DAL tube at 96°C for 2 minutes.
12 After the incubation, invert DAL 1–2 times to mix and immediately place in the icewater bath.
13 Keep the DAL tube in the ice-water bath for 5 minutes.
NOTE
Perform the heat denaturation step immediately before loading DAL into the MiSeq
reagent cartridge to ensure efficient template loading on the MiSeq flow cell.

One pair of oligos is designed for each amplicon. Hybridization of oligos to genomic DNA
occurs in a 96-well plate, followed by extension and ligation to form DNA templates
consisting of the regions of interest flanked by universal primer sequences. Using indexed
primers supplied with the kit, DNA templates are amplified by PCR, pooled into a single
tube, and sequenced on the MiSeq System.

TruSeq Custom Amplicon Library Preparation Process
Overview
The TruSeq Custom Amplicon Library Preparation process overview can be summarized
into the following steps:
Design Your Project
To design the oligos for targeting your regions of interest, use the Illumina DesignStudio.
DesignStudio is a free, simple interface for custom probe design, providing dynamic
feedback to select optimal amplicons and estimates of total project pricing. You can access
DesignStudio through your MyIllumina account. Follow the links in the Custom Products
tab to access DesignStudio for TruSeq Custom Amplicon.
Place Your Order
When you have completed your design through DesignStudio, place your order directly
through your MyIllumina account. You can access the TruSeq Custom Amplicon
Calculator, a convenient tool to help you calculate your supported sample multiplexing
level based on the number of targeted regions and desired coverage. Go to the TruSeq
Custom Amplicon Library Preparation support page on the Illumina website. A
MyIllumina account is required. When placing your order, make sure that you also order
MiSeq reagents and additional components needed to perform the TSCA Sample
Preparation. See the TruSeq Custom Amplicon Library Preparation Kit Contents on page 46 in
this guide for information on additional components such as index primers.
Download Your Manifest File
The manifest file is required for TruSeq Custom Amplicon sequencing on the MiSeq. It
provides the list of regions targeted in your project, which MiSeq uses for alignment and
analysis. The manifest file can be downloaded when your order ships. You can access all
your manifest files for current or previous projects through your MyIllumina account.
Follow the links in the Custom Products tab to access the Product Files for TruSeq Custom
Amplicon.
Prepare Libraries and Sample Sheet
Prepare your libraries using the protocol detailed in this user guide. In parallel, prepare a
sample sheet, which the MiSeq uses to identify each sample and its corresponding index.
42
Part # 15027983 Rev. C
Sequence Libraries on MiSeq
TruSeq Custom Amplicon Libraries must be sequenced on a MiSeq sequencing system
using a paired-end sequencing run. For more details on using the MiSeq instrument or
setting up your run, see the MiSeq System User Guide.
Analyze Data with Illumina Supported Software
Analyze Data with MiSeq Reporter — MiSeq Reporter processes the base calls generated
by the MiSeq sequencing system. It is an on-instrument software, which is built in to the
instrument's processes. MiSeq Reporter produces information such as alignment and
structural variants. For TruSeq Custom Amplicon libraries, it produces aligned reads in the
BAM format and outputs variant calls in .vcf files. For more information about this
software, see the MiSeq System User Guide or MiSeq Reporter's online help
(www.illumina.com/help/miseq_reporter/default.htm).
Illumina Amplicon Viewer — The Illumina Amplicon Viewer has been designed and
developed for off-instrument visualization and analysis of TruSeq Custom Amplicon data.
Amplicon Viewer allows you to view data (including coverage, Q-score, variant calls, etc.)
from multiple MiSeq amplicon runs simultaneously and interactively. DesignStudio might
need to cover a large contiguous region with multiple amplicons, and the Illumina
Amplicon Viewer opens the reconstituted contiguous region with combined coverage and
variants appropriately. You can also export custom reports based on selected
samples/targets/variants. You can download the Amplicon Viewer through your
MyIllumina account. For more information about this software, see
www.illumina.com/help/amplicon_viewer/default.htm.

TruSeq Custom Amplicon Library Preparation
To prepare your sample sheet, use the Illumina Experiment Manager, a wizard-based
application that allows the recording of your sample ID, workflow, indices, and other
parameters applicable to your 96-well plate. The Illumina Experiment Manager can be run
on any Windows platform. You can download the Illumina Experiment Manager from the
Illumina website at www.illumina.com. Go to the TruSeq Custom Amplicon Library
Preparation support page and click Downloads. A MyIllumina account is required.
