One Upgrade. Unlimited Opportunity.

Applied Biosystems™ Data Collection Software v3.1 provides the features and functionality that researchers have been requesting to take their research further. Powered by the Windows™ 7 operating system, our newest and most powerful data collection software for the Applied Biosystems™ 3500 Series Genetic Analyzers enable greater flexibility, efficiency and costs savings along with full user control over on-instrument reagents:

  • 96-sample polymer pouch minimizes polymer waste in lower-throughput labs and applications
  • 14-day stability for on-instrument consumables which minimizes consumable waste and possibly lowers the price per reaction
  • No consumable-based instrument hard stops, giving you control of how much and how long consumables are utilized
  • Use a single 36 -cm array for both sequencing and fragment analysis applications to help decrease sample processing times and driving laboratory efficiency
Additional feature enhancements offer:
  • Built-in e-signature enables greater security and ease of tracking to improve performance for validated and regulated workflows
  • Performance check flexibility with your polymer of choice to help improve cost savings and efficiencies
  • Usage statistic report for greater visibility into consumable management and expenses
  • Comprehensive dashboard delivers regular updates of instrument status and remaining days of on-board consumables

The new Sanger sequencing Data Collection Software v3.1 helps deliver greater value, increased performance and improved efficiency from your 3500 and 3500xL Genetic Analyzers. Take advantage of these upgrade benefits now.
