3500 Dx Series POP-6™ Polymer is a separation matrix for the 3500 Dx⁄3500xL Dx genetic analyzers. It is conveniently offered in easy-to-use pouch packages in either 960- or 384-sample size formats.

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

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Label
RFID labels encode easy-to-track information such as part⁄lot number, samples remaining, and expiration dates (displayed on software dashboard).

Robust Formulation
POP polymers are formulated for a wide range of applications.

Reproducible Results
POP™ polymers dynamically coat the capillary wall to control electro-osmotic flow. Their defined 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.

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. Refer to the Applied Biosystems® 3500 Dx⁄3500xL Dx Genetic Analyzer User Guide for further details.

Contents & storage

Store the polymer pouch at 2-8°C until ready to use.
Note that expired pouches cannot be used on the instrument.

On-instrument life⁄usage

3500 Dx (8 capillary) Genetic Analyzer: lesser of 7 days or 384 samples or 60 injections

3500xL Dx (24 capillary) Genetic Analyzer: lesser of 7 days or 384 samples or 20 injections

The pouch includes additional polymer volume to accommodate both installation and a reasonable number of post-installation wizard operations such as bubble removal without affecting the number of samples⁄injections available.
