When applying a new dye system to a genetic analyzer, it should be calibrated to avoid shadow bands and to obtain correct bands without shadow bands.
Genetic analyzers manufactured by Thermo Fisher are calibrated before they are sold to customers. However, if using a non-Thermo Fisher dye system or a kit containing its own dye system, the instrument must be calibrated.
Genetek kits have our own staining system and require machine calibration.
