Applied Biosystems ABI 3500 XL Genetic Analyzer Genetic Analyser

Model: 
ABI 3500 XL Genetic Analyzer

The  ABI 3500 xL is a 24 capillary genetic analyzer with an advanced long-life solid state LASER. The instrument is used for long-read DNA sequencing (≥1000 bp) and also for versatile demanding fragment analysis such as microsatellite, SNP, AFLP, LOH, MPLA and t-RFLP applications.

The instrument consist of:

  •     24 capillary electrophoresis instrument with Dell computer workstation and flat screen monitor.
  •     advanced thermal design which improves temperature control for demanding fragment analysis.
  •     single line 505 nm solid-state long-life laser that utilizes a standard power supply.
  •     radio frequency identification (RFID) to track key consumables data and records administrative information.
  •     advanced multiplex capabilities, one array and one polymer can be used for most applications.
  •     simple setup, operation and maintenance.
  •     powerful integrated collection software
