Applied Biosystems has launched its ABI PRISM 7900HT Sequence Detection System, a PCR instrument that the company said can conduct gene expression measurements and SNP detection at higher throughput and lower cost than its current ABI PRISM 7700 machine.

The system offers an optional automation accessory capable of loading up to 84 384-well plates into the instrument for 24-hour operation. It can handle micro-titer plates with 96 to 384 wells. The system can be used to test diagnostics and drug compounds.
