Yes, it is possible to use the Applied Biosystems SeqStudio Genetic Analyzer for MLPA.
Data generated by the SeqStudio can be imported directly by our free data analysis software, Coffalyser.Net. The current version of Coffalyser.Net (v.140721.1958) does not yet have the SeqStudio available as capillary electrophoresis device. Until this becomes available, you need to select the ABI 3500 device instead. The quality of the data analysis will not be affected, as both devices have the same optimal signal range and other parameters.
There are no special requirements to run MLPA reactions on the SeqStudio. The (MS-)MLPA General Protocol contains instructions on how to prepare the injection mixture. For more information, you can also read an application note published by Thermo Fisher Scientific that explores the analysis of MLPA data on the SeqStudio.
The information provided in this material is correct for the majority of our products. However, for certain applications, the instructions for use may differ. In the event of conflicting information, the relevant instructions for use take precedence.
