Primer dimer

... product. It does not eliminate unspecific bands and primer-dimers. The quality of the cycle sequencing result is very much dependant of the priming efficiency of the sequencing primer. (ii) Gel Extraction by General Agarose: Isolate and purify the target PCR fragment from unspecific bands, ...
