General-purpose reagents, 2/14

February 2014—Life Technologies released general-purpose reagents (GPRs) for the development of molecular diagnostic assays based on qPCR and capillary electrophoresis (CE). GPR products are for laboratory use and come with a higher quality assurance than research-use-only products. For CE (for sequencing and fragment analysis), BigDye Terminator Cycle Sequencing Reagents provide the required components for cycle sequencing reactions in a premixed format. They are optimized for longer, higher-quality reads with uniform peak heights and optimal signal balance and are appropriate for a range of applications, including de novo sequencing and resequencing.
