Proven, Robust Chemistry

Generate data with uniform peak heights and optimized signal balance to produce long, high-quality reads.

Genetic Analyzer Compatible

BigDye™ 1:1 drop-in alternative, widely adopted by labs using 3130, 3500, 3730 Series Genetic Analyzers and SeqStudio™ Flex. Used with other Sanger workflow products, such as NimaPOP™ or POP™ polymers, and D-Pure™ or iX-Pure™ for cycle sequencing reaction cleanup.

Optimal capillary array performance

Capillary array as a carrier for polymers (e.g. POP™ and NimaPOP™) is critical for peak separation in sequencing and fragment analysis. Regenerating failing arrays drives immediate improvements in peak separation and data quality.

Reduce operation cost

ReCAP™ costs much less then a new capillary array (US$ 5,000) and helps avoiding the cost of unnecessary early array replacement. Taking good care of the capillary array goes a long way for saving money and reducing sequencing operation cost.

IDseek®: Forensic MPS revolution

The first range of MPS assays providing the safest and simplest workflow, powered by one-tube single reaction RC-PCR. With the potential to compete with CE-based assays, for routine application in forensic casework. 

IDseek® OmniSTR™ Kit compatibility

Covering all relevant STR core loci from USA, EU, Germany, UK, and Interpol. Amplicons designed to meet shortest possible fragments lengths and are compatible with illumina® MiSeq, NextSeq 1000 and the MiSeq FGx™. STRmix™ and MixtureACE™ DNA analysis software compatible.

NimaPOP™ polymer compatibility

Excellent dynamic coating and separating ability for all 3500 Series applications. No change in run protocols, conditions, or spectral calibrations. NimaPOP™ pouches come RFID-labeled for all Data Collection Software versions.

Matching workload and application

RFID-labeled pouches for 384 and 960 samples. NimaPOP™-4: fast run times, often fragment analysis in human/animal ID. NimaPOP™-6: ideal for long runs and reading bases very close to the 5′ end. NimaPOP™-7: versatile polymer for a wide range of applications.

Strongest and Fastest Magnet Plate Availabe

Alpaqua MAGNUM FLX® contains proprietary solid-core ring magnets that enable the fastest separation of sample volumes up to 2 mL and elution volumes down to 10 µl; 4.5x faster than 96S Super Magnet.

Plate Compatibility

SBS-footprinted MAGNUM FLX® is compatible with all commonly used 96-well plate types. Its Spring Cushion Technology optimizes use in automated liquid handlers, offering physical tolerances between plate and pipettors, allowing precision aspiration.

Best technique to study microbiome

Analyzing 16S rRNA via NGS library prep provides new insights in identifying complex bacterial content in human, animal, environment, or food samples, where Sanger sequencing fails to detect multiple bacteria in one sample.

One-tube single reaction library prep

EasySeq™ 16S Microbiome Library Prep Kit, powered by Reverse Complement PCR (RC-PCR), provides a cost-effective and safe one-tube single reaction workflow to characterize the microbiome through in-depth analysis of the hypervariable regions V3-V4.
