Fragment Analysis - Microsatellites


  • With our Applied BioSystems 3730xl instrument, we can size:
    • microsatellites (STRs)
    • AFLPs
    • RAPDs
    • other fluorescently-labeled PCR products
    • do mutation analysis such as SSCPs
  • We can detect up to 4 fluorescent dyes, in addition to the size standard.

Dye sets

  • By default, we run the Applied Biosystems DS-33 (aka G5) dye set (6-FAM, VIC, NED, PET, LIZ).
  • We can also run the DS-30 dye set (6-FAM, HEX, NED, ROX).
