Follow this Equipment

The latest generation of 4-capillary electrophoresis instruments for the low to medium throughput laboratories.

With the Applied Biosystems 3130 Genetic Analyzer, you get the sophisticated automation and superior performance of the 3130 system, at acquisition and operating costs tailored to a growing research lab.

  1. Run a wide variety of sequencing and fragment analysis applications including microsatellite analysis, AFLP, LOH, SNP validation, and SNP screening.
  2. Reduce maintenance time by eliminating manual syringe washing and filling with automated polymer delivery.
  3. Increase your data quality for sequencing and fragment analysis applications -- longer read length, and higher resolution with shorter run times.
  4. Increase laboratory productivity and turn around time by processing 96- or 384-well plates with a four-capillary array.

Features of 3130 Genetic Analyzer

Perform a Wide Range of Applications The Applied Biosystems 3130 Genetic Analyzer is more than just a DNA sequencer. You can run a wide variety of sequencing and fragment analysis applications including microsatellite analysis, AFLP, LOH, SNP validation, and SNP screening – as well as de novo sequencing and resequencing (mutational profiling). The full range of applications can be run on a single polymer and capillary array meaning you can run mixed applications on one plate. The software even includes tools to assist with regulatory and compliance requirements (In the United States, this assists with FDA 21CFR part 11).

Easy to Use Reduce maintenance time by eliminating manual syringe washing and filling with the new automated polymer delivery system. No more handling of polymer syringes for set up and maintenance. Samples are automatically injected into the four-capillary arrays, and – unlike slab-gel systems -- only minimal amounts of DNA are required for accurate analysis. Seamlessly switch between sequencing and fragment analysis runs, even in the same plate with the expanded one-polymer, one-array functionality for both sequencing and fragment analysis applications. Superior Data Quality Simply set up your sample and then sit back and watch as the analyzer's ultra-rapid sequencing gives you high-quality data (with Length of Read longer than 500 bp) in less than 35 minutes. Achieve accurate read lengths of 1,000 base pairs (bp) or longer in a single sequencing reaction using the 80 cm capillary array and the 3130 POP-7™ polymer.

Ideal for Growing Labs The flexible, four-capillary 3130 system gives you all the advanced automation and superior performance of Applied Biosystems 3130xl platform, at acquisition and operating costs tailored to a growing research lab. And as your throughput needs increase, you can easily upgrade the system to 16 capillaries. It is the perfect way to get the capacity and savings you need today – without limiting your growth options. Researchers who own an ABI PRISM® 3100-Avant or 3100 Genetic Analyzer can upgrade to the new Applied Biosystems 3130 or 3130xl Genetic Analyzer.

3130 and 3130xl instruments are CE marked and compliant with the specifications and requirements as set in the EMC directive 89/336/EEC and the Low Voltage directive 73/23/EEC
