LightSNiP Assays and Controls

We are happy to announce that we can offer now positive controls for LightSNiP assays. Melting-curve analysis is the most powerful tool for SNP typing. Assays can be used with MyGo, BioRad CFX and all Roche LightCycler® devices.

Point mutations ?

LightSNiP assays contain pre-mixed primers and probes for 96 reactions each 20 µl (or 192x 10 µl), giving instructions and sample data for the Roche LightCycler® 480 system.

We develop assays for any human SNP listed in NCBI - please order by the rs number.

Technology: The melting curve analysis detects any variation covered by the probe, giving certain advantages over competing technologies. Multiple variations yield often specific melting points, allowing to differentiate between more than two variants. Specifically 'new' and unexpected genetic variants may be overseen using a mutation-specific TaqMan assay.
