Applied Biosystems SeqStudio Genetic Analyzer
Same workflow, same trusted technology—now with an innovative all-in-one cartridge that helps reduce setup time from hours to minutes
The new Applied Biosystems SeqStudio Genetic Analyzer is a low-throughput, easy-to-use, and convenient benchtop system that delivers gold-standard Sanger sequencing technology and fragment analysis with just a simple click. It is easily used across a broad range of applications as well as by multiple users. Get the same data quality, service, and support you’ve come to expect from Applied Biosystems technology with a modernized experience at an affordable price.
Gain flexibility in your laboratory schedule with the ability to perform both Sanger sequencing and fragment analysis runs on the same plate, at the same time. The SeqStudio Genetic Analyzer will help maximize your time by removing the need to batch samples.
Figure 1. SeqStudio Genetic Analyzer workflow
The SeqStudio instrument uses an innovative all-in-one cartridge with a single polymer for sequencing and fragment analysis applications. Load up your samples, click in the cartridge, and go—no need for technical experts for setup or maintenance, no calibration before each run, and no installation of individual capillaries, polymer, and anode buffer. The cartridge is stable for 4 months on the instrument.
Achieve fast turnaround with a run-time of as little as 30 minutes.
Easy to use
The SeqStudio Genetic Analyzer accommodates individual cartridges designated for different experimental designs or different researchers. A cartridge-based system allows you to use only what you need, without sharing experimental reagents, and to avoid unnecessary waste. The unique cartridge design enables multiple users to share a single SeqStudio Genetic Analyzer.
An interactive touch screen interface simplifies plate, sample, and run setup. Various result formats can be viewed on the screen to help provide confidence in your experimental data.
Get up and running quickly with training included with system purchase.
The SeqStudio Genetic Analyzer enables you to get connected to your data more easily and quickly than ever before through web browser–based software powered by Thermo Fisher Cloud.
