Save time with the Primer Designer™ Tool by selecting from >300,000 primer pairs targeting the human exome.

Discover primary and secondary data analysis tools and software solutions for interpreting Sanger sequencing results.


Isolate DNA


Isolation of DNA from samples of interest, a critical first step for any Sanger sequencing application.

Perform PCR


Amplify the DNA region of interest: select from predesigned primer pairs or design your own.

Generate products


Generate sequencing products by cycle sequencing; purify reactions to remove fluorescent ddNTP.

Run sequence


The products of the sequencing reaction are injected into capillaries filled with polymer to perform capillary electrophoresis.

Analyze data


Translate raw data into corresponding electropherograms using downstream software applications.
