How can I troubleshoot an issue with Sanger Sequencing?

A control primer (M13) and template (pGEM) are provided with each BrilliantDye kit. These can be run following the BrilliantDye protocol and can help you determine whether failed reactions are caused by poor template quality or sequencing reaction failure.

What is the difference between the different versions of BrilliantDye?

The BrilliantDye Terminator v1.1 Cycle sequencing kit is designed for specialty applications that require optimal basecalling adjacent to the primer.

The BrilliantDye Terminator v3.1. Cycle sequencing kit is the method of choice for longest reads.

For sequencing through G- and GT-rich templates, NimaGen offers the dGTP BrilliantDye kits, optimized for challenging sequence templates.
