The GenomeLab™ GeXP Genetic Analysis System is a versatile platform capable of a multitude of genetic analysis applications from quantitative multiplexed gene expression to sequencing and fragment analysis.
Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism
Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP*) analysis is one of the most powerful DNA fingerprinting methodologies for the identification and typing of eukaryotes and prokaryotic organisms. In plant molecular genetics, AFLP* is used in phylogeny and diversity studies and in a variety of marker-assisted breeding applications. AFLP* is also used in microbial genetic fields such as in epidemiological and evolutionary studies. It is a powerful DNA fingerprinting methodology that offers many advantages over other earlier procedures such as RFLP or RAPD.
Score the presence or absence of AFLP-generated fingerprints
The GenomeLab™ GeXP Series Genetic Analysis System automatically scores the presence or absence of amplified fragment-length polymorphism-generated fragments (dominant scoring), making it an accurate, fast and easy-to-use tool for researchers performing AFLP fingerprinting techniques. In fact, the analysis time for 100 samples is less than 2 minutes, versus the 40 hours often required for manual processing.
