How is ARMS technology superior to alternative methods such as dye terminator sequencing?
FAQ ID -2290

ARMS Technology has several advantages over sequencing methods. Primarily, these are sensitivity, robustness, and ease of use. Sensitivity can be as low as 1% in a background of wild type DNA. A short amplicon size ensures that results can be obtained even from fragmented samples, and the training requirement for analysis is short, meaning new operators can be trained very quickly.
