Qiagen PyroMark Q24 - Pyrosequencing technology for real-time, sequence-based detection for quantification of sequence variants (SNPs/mutation detection) )and epigenetic methylation (CpG analysis).
• Pyrosequencing is a simple and robust technique that sequences by synthesis. Using a short PCR product as a template, bases are added systematically and incorporated into a replicating DNA strand. Pyrosequencing utilizes a series of enzymatic reactions to detect pyrophosphate that is released during base incorporation and uses the detection data to establish the sequence of the template strand.

|• The data is a quantitative measure of each detected nucleotide and is ideal for measuring the relative amounts of alleles. This property allows the quantification of DNA methylation, heterozygosity, ploidy levels, multi-copy genes, pooled DNA samples, hematopoeitic chimerism, and mixed genotypes in heterogeneous samples (e.g. tumor and normal cells).
