Applied Biosystems: Feb 19, 2004


Applied Biosystems has launched its VariantSEQr resequencing system. The product is sold with ready-to-use primers for high-throughput gene amplification and resequencing; no primer design or validation is required by the user, ABI said. The company added that it expects to release resequencing sets for non-human and non-gene targets such as pathogens and human-mouse conserved regions with “high commercial and scientific value,” ABI said in a statement.

The VariantSEQr can be used on either the ABI 3730xl or 3730 DNA analyzers or the ABI Prism 3100 or 3100-Avant gene analyzers. It uses the ABI PCR System 9700, PCR master mis, BigDye Terminator v3.1 sequencing reagents, and SeqScape Software v2.1.
