Sanger sequencing

Sanger sequencing

Despite the introduction of NGS technologies over the past decade, Sanger sequencing remains the ‘gold standard’ to which other sequencing methods are compared.

It is widely used to confirm variants in genomic samples which have been detected using other NGS techniques, although its sensitivity limit of 20% Variant Allelic Frequency generally limits its use to hereditary genetics applications, in which variant alleles are present at either 50% or 100%.

We can work with you to determine the best approach to use, including design and synthesis of the necessary sequencing primer sets.
