This 24-capillary Genetic Analyzer is specifically configured with software for both fragment analysis and sequence typing applications.

The 3500xL 24-capillary platform can run a wide variety of applications, including de novo sequencing and resequencing (mutational profiling), as well as microsatellite analysis, MLPA™, LOH, MLST, AFLP® and SNP validation or screening. The majority of applications can be run on a single polymer and capillary array.

This package includes a 24 capillary instrument, the 3500 Data Collection Software, a Dell Workstation and monitor as well as reagent kits for system qualification. The product package also includes software for sequence typing and fragment analysis. The 3500 Series Data Collection Software integrates seamlessly with several downstream software packages to provide comprehensive analysis of genetic data.

Important Note: Do you still have a 3100? 3100 Systems will be retired at the end of 2011. Take advantage of our limited time promotions to TRADE-IN your 3100 to get a brand new 3500. Please contact your local Sales Representative to learn more.
