With this year marking the 40th anniversary of “Sanger” sequencing using capillary electrophoresis. This Nobel prize winning method is still considered the “gold standard” in DNA sequencing. Kim Kelderman, Vice President and General Manager, Genetic Analysis, introduces the Applied Biosystems SeqStudio Genetic Analyzer.
The SeqStudio instrument is a smart, easy to use benchtop system that delivers gold standard Sanger sequencing and fragment analysis with just a simple click of the cartridge. The all-in-one cartridge combines capillaries, polymer and reagents and the instrument’s auto-calibration capabilities help you get started in minutes rather than hours. The system can perform both Sanger sequencing and fragment analysis reactions on the same run at the same time.
