The cathode buffer container (CBC) contains 1x running buffer to support all electrophoresis applications on the Applied Biosystems® 3500 series Genetic Analyzers. The container has two separate compartments, the left side provides the cathode buffer for electrophoresis and the right side provides for a capillary wash and spent polymer waste ejection functionality between injections. The CBC is made in a ready-to-use, disposable container with a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag incorporated into the label. The top of the CBC is heat sealed with a plastic film, which should be removed prior to direct installation on to the instrument. Each package includes four individual containers.
