Integrated Touchscreen Operation

The Spectrum Compact Control Software provides a simple user interface with a clear display of useful features including run set up, consumables and array usage information, as well as system maintenance reminders. With the easy to use operational workflow instrument, the instrument also offers the ability to monitor run progress and view results while a run is in progress. Export files are compatible with commercially available data analysis software such as GeneMarker®, Mutation Surveyor® and GeneMapper®.


System Consumables and Components

Plug-and-Play prefilled consumables with guided software user interface brings capillary electrophoresis capabilities to the hands of any researcher in the laboratory regardless of skill level or expertise.

Not only is the Spectrum Compact System simple to set up and operate, related consumables such as pre-filled buffers and polymer are available in convenient packaging. Accessories such as plates, strip-tubes and septa mats are also available for purchase. All consumables use barcoding to track key information.
