Is the quality and size of DNA extracted with the DNeasy Blood & Tissue kit good enough to generate DNA-libraries for next generation sequencing?

The size of DNA obtained with DNeasy Blood & Tissue kit ranges between 100 bp and 50 kb, with 30 kb fragments predominating. The 30 kb fragments are a good starting point for most of the library preparations. Furthermore, the purified DNA is free of protein, nucleases, and other contaminants and inhibitors, and therefore is suitable for NGS.
