DNA methylation analysis on PyroMark Q48 Autoprep

Sep 26, 2017 1:00 PM–2:00 PM (EDT)
Duration: 1hrs

Based on the sequencing-by-synthesis principle, Pyrosequencing is a highly flexible technology for rapid and quantitative analysis of any type of sequence variation. The real-time output delivers high-resolution sequence information, making Pyrosequencing highly suitable for various applications, particularly for DNA methylation quantification. Combined with the latest EpiTect Fast bisulfite conversion technology, the new PyroMark Q48 Autoprep can now provide highly automated methylation analysis in a single day.

This webinar will focus on the following topics:

  • How bisulfite conversion can be improved for more reliable methylation results
  • How 5-hmC can be differentiated from 5-mc
  • Why Pyrosequencing is ideally suited for sensitive methylation analysis
  • What does "advanced" Pyrosequencing offer for methylation analysis
  • How the new PyroMark Q48 Autoprep streamlines the workflow for methylation analysis
