The 3500 Genetic Analyzer for Protein Quality Analysis is a capillary electrophoresis instrument with an 8-capillary array specifically designed to support the demanding performance needs of biopharmaceutical screening and quality control environments, while retaining the unsurpassed application versatility appreciated by scientists working in analytical and process development environments. The instrument enables parallel analysis of 8 samples without compromising on the run time per sample, thereby enabling high throughput analysis with high quality data. This system includes an 8-capillary instrument, GlycanAssure™ Acquisition and Analysis Software, a Dell Workstation and monitor, as well as reagent kits for system qualification.

Features include:
• An 8-capillary system that can easily be upgraded to a 24-capillary system when you need higher throughput
• Single-line, 505 nm, solid-state, long-life laser that utilizes a standard power supply and requires no heat removal
• Powerful, integrated data acquisition and analysis software that provides real-time assessment of data
• Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology that tracks key consumables data and records administrative information
• Advanced multiplexing capabilities for glycan analysis with up to six unique dyes
• Unrivaled application flexibility—one array and one polymer are used for most applications
• Simple setup, operation, and maintenance

Accurate, precise, and reliable data quality
The 3500 Series systems significantly improve signal uniformity from instrument-to-instrument, run-to-run, and capillary array-to-capillary array. The systems provide accurate, reproducible, and precise relative quantitation of glycan levels.

Ready-to-use consumables with RFID tags
The 3500 Series systems introduce ready-to-use consumables with pre-packaged polymer pouches, cathode and anode buffer containers, and easy-to-install capillary arrays. Each of these consumables is integrated with RFID tags that enable viewing, tracking, and reporting of critical information about reagents and consumables, including usage, lot number, part number, expiry date, and on-instrument lifetime within the GlycanAssure data acquisition software.

Easy-to-Use data acquisition and data analysis software
GlycanAssure data acquisition software breaks new ground in user-friendly navigation with an intuitive dashboard design, highly visible buttons for common operations, easy-to-read graphical displays to monitor the state of consumables, simplified plate setup, and a handy maintenance scheduling calendar functionality. GlycanAssure data analysis software allows quick viewing of analyzed and un-analyzed samples and quick comparison of different analysis methods. It includes built-in primary analysis with quality control, so you can make decisions about the quality of data as it is produced without the need to transfer output files to other software.
