We have improved the formulation of the dLUTE SEQ formulation to make it easier to mix. This improvement has also removed the smell of the previous formulation. The dLUTE SEQ users manual has also been updated.
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.
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.

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.
