Welcome to the world of BrilliantDye®

Brand introduction

BrilliantDye: The premium quality drop-in alternative for BigDye®


The BrilliantDye kits are delivered as a 2.5x concentrated ready-reaction premix, fully optimized for a highly flexible chemistry, designed for all kinds of sequencing applications, including de novo sequencing and resequencing. The kits generate data with uniform peak heights and optimized signal balance to produce long, high-quality reads.

The kits are compatible with ABI genetic analyzers of the 310, 3100, 3130, 3500, 3730 and SeqStudio series as well as the Promega Spectrum system. No need for changing protocols, workflows, settings and calibrations.

BrilliantDye Terminator cycle sequencing kit (two versions available)

The BrilliantDye Terminator v1.1

The BrilliantDye Terminator v1.1 Cycle sequencing kit is designed for specialty applications that require optimal basecalling adjacent to the primer.

The BrilliantDye Terminator v3.1

The BrilliantDye Terminator v3.1. Cycle sequencing kit is the method of choice for longest reads.

The dGTP BrilliantDye kit

For sequencing through G- and GT-rich templates, NimaGen offers the dGTP BrilliantDye kits, optimized for challenging sequence templates, by replacing the dITP with dGTP.
