How is ARMS technology superior to alternative methods such as dye terminator sequencing?

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.
