GANA TEL is purified telomere sequence
Composed of repeated TTAGGG sequence
Telomere are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA that protect our chromosomes, like the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces. Without the coating, shoelaces become frayed until they can no longer do their job, just as without telomeres, DNA strands become damaged and our cells can't do their job.
each time a cell divides, the telomere get shorter. When they get too short, the cell can no longer divide; it becomes inactive or "senescent" or it dies. This shortening process is associated with aging, cancer, and a higher risk of death. So telomere also have been compared with a bomb fuse.
Real time PCRA real-time polymerase chain reaction (Real-Time PCR), also known as quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), is a laboratory technique of molecular biology based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). It monitors the amplification of a targeted DNA molecule during the PCR, i.e. in real-time, and not at its end, as in conventional PCR. Real-time PCR can be used quantitatively (quantitative real-time PCR), and semi-quantitatively, i.e. above/below a certain amount of DNA molecules (semi quantitative real-time PCR).
The Qsep100 automated DNA analyzer is a fluorescence DNA-CE system based on micro-capillary electrophoresis technology that provides post PCR separation and detection of DNA Fragments. The system is comprised of the Detection Engine, Analysis Engine, the Sample Loader, and the Disposable Pen-Shaped Gel-Cartridge / Chemistry Kits. The pen-shaped gel-electrophoresis cartridge can do 200 tests at 2-7 minutes per sample. Novel reagent packaging and intuitive software provides ease of operation, automated tracking of consumables and overall management of the genotyping system.
HPLCHigh-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC; formerly referred to as high-pressure liquid chromatography) is a technique in analytical chemistry used to separate, identify, and quantify each component in a mixture. It relies on pumps to pass a pressurized liquid solvent containing the sample mixture through a column filled with a solid adsorbent material. Each component in the sample interacts slightly differently with the adsorbent material, causing different flow rates for the different components and leading to the separation of the components as they flow out of the column.
