CES is used in a wide range of fields such as a basic research in molecular biology, breeding research, genetic disease research, paternity confirmation and forensic research, and has become a key in the continued development of life sciences.
Separate online order system is also available for customers’ convenience so that they can request a desired service.
Monitoring of all processes and follow-up for the results are provided for each ordered sample.
Standard sequencing is a service that sequences PCR products and plasmid DNA requested by customers.
Macrogen provides quicker and more accurate services based on the Capillary Electrophoresis Sequencing (CES)
automation system and extensive experience.
After the results are delivered, an expert in the sequencing field is ready to provide help until the follow-up.
Standard sequencing can be performed with single tubes and 96-well plates.
In PCR product and Plasmid samples, it may be difficult to verify the sequence result as the basic experimental condition.
This service is designed to check for improved sequencing results using non-normal structures and appropriate reagents and conditions.
Primer walking is a service that analyzes the sequence of plasmids or PCR products that cannot be read at once by single primer extension.
It is generally used to obtain about 2 to 10kb of sequence information.
End sequencing is performed with a primer provided or specified by the customer, and the internal primer is designed and produced based on the results.
This is extended continuously by redesigning the internal primer in a suitable location from the results obtained
by the new primer’s reaction with the same template. Walking takes about 4 days, and can be extended about 500 ‒ 800 bp in one direction.
EZ-seq brings easiness and simplicity to your daily DNA sequencing process. EZ-seq is a prepaid barcode service,
in which you order barcode online, receive them by courier service and use them for sequencing.

and fungi (filamentous fungus and yeast) to PCR amplification, purification, sequencing, and BI report.
For bacteria, PCR of 16S rRNA genes is performed using 27F and 1492R primers, and sequencing is conducted using 785F
and 907R primers, which are the inter-primers, to identify bacteria. If the customer requests,
a primer can be additionally selected/changed and about 1,350 bp or longer sequences can be provided.
The default 2rxn (785F, 907R) is selected to allow more primer runs if desired.
1,600 bp or higher results are guaranteed by the sequencing of the 18S rRNA region.
500 bp or longer results are guaranteed by the sequencing of ITS region.
1,300bp or longer results are guaranteed by the sequencing of 26S rRNA gene (D1/D2/D3 region).
Microbial mass analysis and identification service using MALDI-TOF protein analysis technology uses
the world's first FDA Clearance acquisition and AOAC certified system.
This service is suitable for customers who want accurate microbial coordination
while taking shorter time than the existing basic sequence compassion service.
To classify subspecies within the same species, such as Bacteria and Fungi,
the PCR amplification is conducted using 6 to 8 housekeeping genes that are homogenous.
The association between sequence types (STs) can be analyzed through data assemble by sequencing 450 to 600bp internal structure
to reveal genetic and molecular evolutionary relationships through a combination of various antagonists of different subspecies
within the same species.
The fragment analysis service includes various services such as genotyping, DNA profiling,
medical mutation detection and agricultural research.
Macrogen provides a microsatellite analysis (VNTRs) service based on
our extensive experience and expertise.
Fragment analysis is a service that separates and analyzes amplified PCR products according
to fragments using a primer marked by a fluorescent label.
