3500 Dx Series POP-7™ and POP-6™ are separation matrices for the 3500 Dx⁄3500xL Dx Genetic Analyzers. They are conveniently offered in easy-to-use pouch packages with either 960 samples (maximum) or 384 samples (maximum) size formats. Each polymer is optimized for specific applications.

Easy to Use
Polymer is pre-formulated in a single use pouch, which not only saves time but also ensures reliability and consistency.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) label
The RFID encodes easy-to-track important information such as part⁄lot number, samples remaining and expiry dates (displayed on software dashboard)
Robust Formulation
Polymers are formulated for a wide range of applications.

Reproducible Results
POP™ polymers dynamically coat the capillary wall to control electro-osmotic flow. Their definite quality and uniform consistency eliminate guesswork and help to ensure reproducibility. POP Polymers are specifically formulated to separate DNA fragments of a known size range at a desired resolution and run time.

Many Choices
POP-7™ polymer is very versatile and designed for a wide range of short-read to long-read sequencing applications. POP-6™ polymer is the choice for certain sequencing applications.

Performance Optimized Polymer
This product is intended for in-vitro diagnostic use on the Applied Biosystems 3500 Dx Series Genetic Analyzers and is not validated for use with other systems or applications. The 3500 Dx Series Genetic Analyzer is to be used by trained operators in the analysis of human DNA or RNA, for the detection of genetic changes that may lead to disease presence or susceptibility. Off-label uses such as fragment analysis are for research use only. Refer to the Applied Biosystems 3500 Dx⁄3500xL Dx Genetic Analyzer User Guide for further details.
