Lower detection limits and reliability of the detection of mutations by this PCR-SSCP analysis may be explained by multiple factors: (a) the use of precast gels; (b) the efficient temperature regulation with an independent thermostatic circulator that provides a wide range of precise running temperatures from 6 to 20 [degrees]C and avoids the addition of glycerol to the gels often reported as decreasing the effects of temperature variability [10]; and (c) the use of partially denaturing conditions with a temperature varying from 6 to 12 [degrees]C, which increases the sensitivity of PCR-SSCP analysis, particularly for large or GC-rich fragments (exon 9).
