Sanger sequencing


3730xl DNA Analyzer (ThermoFisher Scientific)

  • It allows to identify point mutations and small insertions and deletions in the coding regions, as well as in the splicing sites of the entire HBB gene.
  • This kit cannot detect large deletions or duplications.
  • It includes reagents to perform repetitions of control samples or specific exons to confirm your result.
  • It complies with the quality requirements specified by ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 in relation to the materials used in its manufacturing process.
  • For research use.

Imegen-HBB uses Sanger sequencing technology. This highly exhaustive method is based on in vitro DNA replication, during which the selective incorporation, by a DNA polymerase, of fluorescently labeled chain-terminating dideoxynucleotides takes place. This process generates fragments of different sizes that are analyzed by capillary electrophoresis and give rise to a complete nucleotide sequence of the amplified region of the gene by analyzing two complementary DNA strands (Forward y Reverse).
