The new gold standard in dye terminator removal!

Optima DTR™ is a new line of dye terminator removal products based on a proprietary resin that provides clean-up of CE/Sanger sequencing reactions comparable to our current Performa® DTR products.  The Optima DTR 8-well format was developed specifically for medium-throughput users as a cost-effective alternative to the single sample format Performa DTR Gel Filtration Cartridges. The Optima DTR 8-well format provides the same high-quality results as Performa DTR, but at a lower price and uses the same simple protocol as the Optima DTR 96-well plates.

  • Long read lengths:  Consistently achieve contiguous read lengths >800 bases, with an average of 900 bases
  • More readable sequence:  Identify the bases close to the primer and obtain excellent signal strength
  • Quick, simple protocol with minimal hands-on time: Process more samples for sequencing each day than with single sample cartridges
  • Effective dye terminator removal of various chemistries:  BigDye® Terminator v3.1 and  BigDye® Terminator v1.1
  • Cost-effective solution for medium throughput applications: Same high-quality results as Performa DTR Gel Filtration Cartridges

Includes 12 Optima DTR 8-well strips in a 96-well holder, 2 flat-bottom waste trays, 2 V-bottom collection plates and one 8-well balancing strip. The waste trays and balancing strip are reusable, so a version with just the Optima DTR 8-well strips, the Optima 8-Well Strip Refill, is also available (see 8WELL-1R).
