Which CE Is Right For Me?

We developed the Spectrum Family of CE instruments with the day-to-day challenges of the forensic analyst in mind. Whether you need higher throughput, 4-plate capacity and access to 8-dye technology, or simply want a smaller instrument compatible with existing 4-, 5- and 6-dye STR kits for your forensic samples, there’s a Spectrum CE System for you.

Built for Your Workflow

The Spectrum CE System supports 8-color chemistry, offering superior results over existing kits. Both systems are compatible with existing 5- and 6-color STR kits from multiple vendors. The Spectrum Compact CE System also supports Sanger sequencing, making it ideal for de novo sequencing or NGS confirmation, in addition to fragment analysis.

We offer on-site installation and training for both instruments, software and kits, as well as timely on-site repair and preventative maintenance service to ensure minimal interruption of your lab operations. Our team of experienced field service engineers and support scientists will ensure a seamless installation and provide on-site training for your staff to get your lab up and running on a Spectrum instrument as quickly as possible.
