The University has moved into its "red" phase in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. All University staff, except those needed for business-critical activity, are now working remotely. Our facilities will therefore not be able to provide a normal service for the foreseeable future. Details of current arrangements and available services can be found here.

Sanger Instrument

Fragment analysis applications are those in which fluorescent fragments of DNA (produced by PCR using primers designed for a specific experiment) are separated using capillary electrophoresis and sized by comparison to a size standard.

Most fragment analysis applications have simplified workflows—straightforward sample preparation (without the purification required for sequencing samples), ability to multiplex, and applications can all be separated using the same capillary electrophoresis polymer.
