For IRRI scientist only: Fragment Analyzer Automated System
From January 2014, at GSL we have the Fragment Analyzer Automated System. This is a fluorescence-based capillary electrophoresis instrument. The system was designed especially for separating nucleic acids the highest resolution ad fastest run times of any capillary electrophoresis system.
This sistem can resolve 5-10 bp difference of PCR products. Two qualitatives kits are being offered as a service: they can resolve band sizes within the ranges of 35- 500 pb and 35-1500 bp respectively.
Users can submit plates of PCR products which are ready to run using standard primers (no fluorescently labeled primers are needed) because this system uses a sensitive intercalating dye.
