Scalable sample processing

  • Gold-standard Sanger sequencing technology for high-throughput genetic analysis
  • Scale the number of samples being processed using either a 48- or 96-capillary array
  • Use the integrated plate stacker to enable up to 48-hour uninterrupted instrument operation or add plates while the instrument is running
  • Use the plate size that fits your protocol with option to process 96- or 384-well plates
  • Automation features help decrease the risk of human error, including an internal barcode reader and onboard polymer delivery system

Greater lab and data management

  • Microsoft Windows 10 operating system for increased security and continued support from Microsoft
  • Remote instrument access enables remote run setup and monitoring
  • View and conduct primary analysis from anywhere with remote data management application 
  • Reduce time for data processing and delivery of customer results using a personal secured folder*
  • Enable your customers to conduct secondary analysis at no cost**

* Cloud data storage up to 1 TB for free
** Using the CE modules available in the cloud  

Simplified laboratory space planning

  • No specialized lab preparation required to place a new instrument or move the instruments you already own
  • Just find the right-sized bench space and access to a 110 V or 220 V power plug
  • No heat ducting required with a cool-running, single-line 505 nm laser
