The our new DNA sequencing service for increasing sequence read length will be launched January 2006. This service allows the read length of DNA sequence traces to be improved through data reprocessing alone. For more about this exciting new service please visit the LongTrace DNA sequencing service page.
We have added a review of more than 143 DNA sequencing facilities that offer general DNA sequencing services. In addition, we have added a guide to selecting a DNA sequencing service provider. We hope you find these guides and reviews helpful.
We have added a guide to troubleshooting automated DNA sequencing problems to our support pages. This guide is not complete and will be added to over the next two months. If you have any questions or comments on this guide please email our support team.
Nucleics has updated our web site. We hope you like the new look.
We will be showing our DNA sequencing software, service & reagents at the Genomes, Medicine and the Environment GSAC2005 conference to be held at the Hilton Head Marriott Beach & Golf Resort from October 17 – 19, 2005.
Nucleics has relocated from the Australian Technology Park, Sydney to the Bendigo campus of La Trobe University. This move provides Nucleics with improved facilities, as well as access to critical research infrastructure and collaborators. Our updated contact information is available from our contact information page.
Nucleics announces the release of the QualTrace 1.2 DNA sequencing trace analysis software. QualTrace provides real-time detection of production failures that limit the read length of DNA sequencing traces. It is compatibility with both the ABI KB base caller and ABI 3XX base callers on the ABI3730 and 3730xl DNA sequencers.
The QualTrace 1.2 update identifies nine major problems commonly encounter during DNA sequencing. New features in this software version include the ability to detect excess leftover BigDye™ (dye blobs), a new “excellent” trace type, an updated log file, and the ability to analysis multiple DNA sequencing trace sub folders.
For further information please visit the QualTrace DNA sequencing trace analysis software page.
Nucleics launched the CounterTrace II DNA sequencing software & reagent. The CounterTrace II™ software is an updated version of the CounterTrace DNA sequencing kit designed for use with the KB basecaller on the ABI3730 and 3730xl DNA sequencers. CounterTrace II offers increases in alignable KB Q20+ read lengths of up to 30% for individual DNA traces, with an average of 15% to 20% in high throughput sequencing production centers.
For further information on the CounterTrace II sequencing system please visit the CounterTrace II DNA sequencing page.
Nucleics moved on the 26th May 2003 to the Biotechnology precinct of the Australian Technology Park, Redfern, Australia. This move allows Nucleics to significantly expand our R&D base and provides a platform for future growth of our software & reagents for DNA sequencing.
