High-resolution melting (HRM) is a novel, homogeneous, post-PCR method, enabling genomic researchers to analyze genetic variations (SNPs, mutations, methylations) in PCR amplicons. The most important high-resolution melting application is gene scanning - the search for the presence of unknown ...
More flexibility, more breakthrough applications - Roche continues to unlock the sequencing secrets that will change the world
In 2005, the Genome Sequencer 20 System was introduced into the global life science market. Based on the revolutionary 454 sequencing technology, this system is able to generate hundreds of thousands of sequence reads in a few hours at a fraction of
The LightCycler® Real-time PCR Systems provide fast, accurate, and versatile platforms for genetic variation research. They feature the temperature homogeneity and the optical characteristics re-quired for high-performance melting curve analysis. The plate-based LightCycler® 480 System now ...
Germ-line alterations of the BRCA1 gene confer a lifetime risk of 40% for ovarian cancers and of 40%-80% for breast cancers. It is likely that BRCA1 acts as a tumor suppressor gene. BRCA1 involvement in breast cancers does not seem to be restricted
The Genome Sequencer 20 System is an ultra-high-throughput automated DNA sequencing system capable of carrying out and monitoring sequencing reactions in a massively parallel fashion. Since the Genome Sequencer 20 System provides a complete solution
Mutations in the breast cancer susceptibility gene, BRCA1, occur in the majority of families with multiple members affected with breast or ovarian cancer. Women who inherit a BRCA1 mutation have 40%-80% risk of developing breast cancer or ovarian cancer. However, up to 90% of breast cancers are ...
Lamins are structural proteins which form a thin fibrous layer called the nuclear lamina. Currently, three types of lamins are known in mammalian cells: lamin A, B, and C. Lamins may be involved in DNA replication, chromatin organization, differentiation, nuclear structural support, nuclear ...
The avian H5N1 influenza virus has killed thousands of birds and caused several fatal cases in humans in Asia and Turkey. A fast and reliable test to identify the virus is urgently required for an effective epedemiological control, and associated med
