According to the company, the Surveyor Mutation Detection Kits will be a “key tool” for scientists in need of high-throughput analysis of genetic variation, particularly when these variations are present at very low levels. Transgenomic touted the product’s precision and said it would save researchers time and money.
Transgenomic announced this week the launch of its next generation Surveyor Mutation Detection Kits for universal primer fluorescent capillary electrophoresis.
“The kits detect mismatch mutations in DNA that has been PCR amplified using two fluorescent primers and digested with Surveyor nuclease,” the company said in a statement. “This then allows highly sensitive mutation detection on Applied Biosystems DNA sequencing instruments.”
