Soon scientists will be able to perform efficient DNA analysis right at their bench. Promega Corporation has announced the development of a benchtop capillary electrophoresis (CE) instrument in collaboration with Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation. The Spectrum Compact CE System meets small batch and single sample needs in DNA analysis and performs both sequencing and fragment analysis at a moment’s notice.
The Spectrum Compact CE System allows laboratories of all sizes the freedom to carry out single nucleotide polymorphism, PCR sizing and microsatellite analysis, de novo sequencing, NGS validation, and mutation detection. This benchtop CE instrument runs up to 32 samples at once and features 4-capillary, 6-dye detection along with an integrated touch-screen for instrument operation. Plug-and-play prefilled reagent cartridges with a guided software user interface brings capillary electrophoresis capabilities to the hands of any scientist in the laboratory regardless of skill level or expertise.
“This opens new possibilities to scientists...
