Accurate quantification of the number of amplifiable library molecules loading into a flow cell is one of the most critical steps in the next-generation sequencing (NGS) workflow in obtaining high-quality read data with NGS technologies. Loading an insufficient amount of library DNA will result in low cluster density and reduced sequencing yield. An overabundance of library DNA may increase cluster density and result in poor quality data. Standard methods of NGS library quantification, by electrophoresis or spectrophotometry, have low sensitivity, are non-specific for adapter-bound DNA and typically require a large amount of library sample for analysis.
With its greater sensitivity and broad dynamic range, qPCR is therefore seen as the gold standard for NGS library quantification, as it accurately measures the number of molecules that can serve as templates during library and cluster amplification, even with very dilute libraries.
