NEW YORK, Nov 30 - Applied Biosystems introduced a new package of consumables for its ABI prism 3700 gene expression analyzers Thursday.
This new “Productivity Pack” includes BigDye DNA sequencing chemistry for capillary and slab-gel-based systems; a polymer that is designed to enable users of the 3700 DNA Analyzer to perform two to four additional sequencing runs per day, in addition to the four to eight runs they can currently perform; and a new 2.0 version of the 3700 Data Collection Software that allows the 3700 to operate unattended for up to 24 hours.
" These new tools could provide a significant increase in productivity for our customers, particularly those conducting high-throughput genomic research," Applied Biosystems president Michael Hunkapiller said in a statement.
ABI expects to begin to delivery these components for by the end of January 2001. Subsequent productivity packs are planned to service users of ABI prism 310 and 3100 genetic analyzers.
