Dear Mairead,

we have used the following:

about 12 microl volume,
8 microl premix
10 pmol primer
3 microg DNA
- 4' 98 C
- 30 cycles

In principal, it worked. Our users have used Qiagen colums for template
purification. Still, some people get better DNA than others. As usual (or
here even more), template quality is crucial.

Best regards, Bernd
