Microsatellite Genotyping - CODIS

Our Fragment Analysis service provides clients the ability tosize their DNA fragments using a fluorescence-based detection system on our 3730XL  Genetic Analyzer.A maximum of five fluorescent dyes per lane permits multiplexing of four microsatellites and the fifth dye for an internal size standard to correct for variability between lanes.
