GENOTYPING

Before starting your project, please ensure that your dye sets are compatible with our Applied Biosystems 3730XL DNA Analyzers.


The dye set best suited for our 3730XL is DS-33, which includes these dyes: 6-FAM, VIC, NED, PET, and LIZ (LIZ Size Standard). Please call us if you must use other dye sets.


To submit your samples, you will need to use a 96 well half skirted or semi skirted PCR plate.  


We prefer samples to be submitted in a specific type of plate:

  • Catalog#: 4ti-0770/c
  • Description: FrameStar 96, semi-skirted
  • To order, please contact Dennis Harte @ 510-882-0640 or www.BasicScientific.com
  • If you are on campus, please stop by 310 Barker and we are happy to provide the plates for free of charge.

Please provide a minimum of 10 μl of PCR products in HiDi Formamide. Each well should have size standard.
