Sanger DNA Sequencing

DNA sequencing is becoming increasingly important in all disciplines of molecular biology, as well as in applied fields such as diagnostics or forensic research. The speed at which one obtains the results is therefore a critical factor in the efficiency of genomic research and diagnostic work.

In 2010, inqaba biotec upgraded the sequencing laboratory with the acquisition of a new ABI 3500XL sequencer. This has decreased our turnaround time and improved the quality of the generated sequences. The market response was so overwhelming that we had to acquire another ABI 3500XL sequencer to keep up with the demand. With the added capacity we are now able to produce more than 12 000 sequences per month.

inqaba biotec offers tailor-made sequencing services; from a single reaction up to the sequencing of whole genomes. We offer a range of services ranging from Simple lane reactions, giving you maximum control, to our Full service where your job ends with growing colonies containing the correct fragment or collection of relevant tissue. We try and keep our service as flexible as possible to accommodate your needs.
