More Correct Calls With Higher Signal-to-Noise Ratios

Life Technologies BioPrime® labeling systems enable reliable and consistent genomic DNA labeling and efficient removal of free dye and nucleotides. And because results obtained using these reagents exhibit improved signal-to-background and reduced channel bias, you can count on greater accuracy.

Which BioPrime® system is right for me?

The BioPrime® Total aCGH reagents offer various configurations to allow for optimal performance on arrays based on premier enzymes, primers, dyes, and purification systems. For two-color array CGH and ChIP-on-chip experiments, we recommend the BioPrime® Total Genomic Labeling system. The BioPrime® Total Genomic Labeling system allows for the lowest starting input material, includes application-optimized dye-labeled nucleotides (with Alexa Fluor® 3 and Alexa Fluor® 5 dyes), and is the simplest, easiest-to-use kit in the product family. For researchers who wish to use other dyes, we offer BioPrime® aCGH Genomic Labeling systems without dyes—this allows you to take advantage of the higher-performance enzymes and reagents in our BioPrime® kits to deliver superior yield and better total dye incorporation.
