Capillary Electrophoresis

Capillary electrophoresis is a methodology used for separating and detecting short tandem repeat (STR) alleles in forensic DNA laboratories worldwide. The process of capillary electrophoresis separates ions based on their electrophoretic mobility with the use of an applied voltage.

Atik’s CCD cameras are well suited to the sample detection element of capillary electrophoresis due to the high quality images that our cameras produce. Additionally, due to the customisable nature of Atik’s OEM imaging solutions, our cameras can be integrated into any solution and be reshaped to ensure the least intrusive fit possible.
