Our PCR fragment analysis services can save you time and resources by using high-throughput capillary electrophoresis to analyse your PCR products. The information below shows some of the applications that our CE DNA analysis services can assist with.

PCR assays are commonly used to screen for the presence or absence of a variety of genetic features, e.g. insertions, deletions, and SNPs, in a range of organisms. These assays include techniques such as:

  • Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphisms (RFLPs)
  • Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphisms (AFLPs)
  • Single-stranded conformation polymorphism (SSCPs)
  • Other custom designed PCRs

The DNA amplified in these assays is often then analysed by running agarose gels which, when you have a high number of samples, can be a very time consuming and labour-intensive process.  


Our fragment analysis service can speed up your research by analysing your PCR results in a 96-well plate format using high-throughput CE DNA analysers. Fluorescently labelled PCR products from 50-1100 base pairs can be analysed and differences in fragment size as little as 1 base pair can be detected. Compatible fluorescent dyes include 6-FAM, VIC, NED, and PET. The increased resolution of capillary electrophoresis and the availability of different fluorescent dyes means that you can also multiplex assays, further saving time and reagent costs.
