we had good results with lambda DNA from Qiagen preps. However, also 
that was not really stable. To me, it seems that this DNA is not 
sufficiently pure. I recommend to our users to do PCR on the lambda 
DNA. We use the resulting PCR fragment as template, and that worked 
quite well for us. The drawback are problems with large genomic 
inserts, but even in such cases two outward primers from the probe 
combined with vector-flanking primers help sometimes.

We use the PE "1000bp protocol" provided by the PE people at 
Weiterstadt, and that works really well. But the instrument is 
occupied a long time, and you have to play tricks to increase data 
collection time.

Regards, Bernd
