Sanger sequencing

FIMM Technology Centre's SeqLab provides DNA sequencing services for the scientific community nationally and internationally. In addition to DNA sequencing, small to medium scale fragment analysis service is also available. Sequencing system used is Applied Biosystems ABI3730XL DNA Analyzer. As a starting material we use purified PCR products mixed with sequencing primer or ready made sequencing/fragment analysis reactions. Maximum read length (QV>20) for high quality sequencing product is around 600bp.
