The Facility uses an ABI Prism 377 Genetic Analyzer to collect and analyze the sequencing data as well as an ABI 310 Genetic Analyzer. The ABI 310 analyzer can also be used for microsatellite analysis and DNA fragment sizing for RFLP/AFLP analysis. GeneScan software is available for analysis of fragments. Recently, the facility resources expanded due to acquisition of an additional GE Healthcare MegaBase 500 instrument, which more than doubles its production capacity allowing the Facility to accommodate large-scale genome analysis projects.
Additional equipment includes a refrigerated tabletop Eppendorf centrifuge with a bucket rotor for centrifugation of microplates, two thermal cyclers, two SpeedVac centrifugal evaporation systems, a spectrofotometer and other small equipment.
