Applied Biosystems 3730xl DNA Sequencer
(operated by Core Staff)

  • This instrument is used by core personnel to sequence DNA templates
  • Sequencing of cloned inserts or PCR products is done by DNA polymerase-mediated linear amplification of templates in the presence of mixtures of dNTPs and fluorescently-labeled dideoxynucleotide triphosphates (Sanger method), followed by fractionation of the extension products by capillary electrophoresis using the 3730xl.
  • This is a capillary sequencer capable of processing 96 template samples simultaneously; up to ~4000 samples/week.
  • Submit templates in either individual reaction tube format or cost-effective plate format.
  • Standard sequencing PCR reaction conditions include 92C denaturation, annealing at 50C and extension at 60C for a total of 30 cycles.
  • Please consult with Genomics Core staff for troublesome templates requiring different conditions.
