Applied Biosystems (ABI) 3730xl DNA Analyzer

  • 96-capillary array provides high-throughput sample processing
  • Higher optical sensitivity and advanced polymers enable you to obtain higher-quality sequencing data.
  • Optimized polymers also increase your productivity without compromising your results.
  • High accuracy and analysis of DNA sequence up to 1,000 bp.
  • A wide variety of sequencing and fragment analysis applications, such as DNA sequencing, microsatellite analysis, and DNA methylation detection, etc.

Dye Set Selection

Currently the CGS utilizes filter set G5 and the ABI PRISM Linkage Mapping Set DS-33 with the following fluorescent dyes:

Dye Colour
6-FAM Blue
VIC Green
NED Yellow
PET Red
LIZ 
(the size standard)
Orange

Sizing Range

The CGS routinely provides GeneScan™ 500 LIZ® as size standard.
It is suitable for sizing DNA fragments in the 35-500 nucleotides range.
