Small-Footprint Advanced Multiplexing

STR fragment analysis results using PowerPlex Fusion System and Spectrum Compact CE System

Electropherogram of 1ng of 2800M control DNA analyzed with PowerPlex® Fusion 6C System run on Spectrum Compact CE System. Injection was performed at 1.6kV for 9 seconds.

Single-Base Resolution

Spectrum Compact CE System achieves a 1bp resolution

Spectrum Compact CE System achieves a 1bp resolution, as can be seen in the D12S391 locus in the PowerPlex® ESI 17 Fast System Allelic Ladder. Injection was performed at 1.6kV for 9 seconds.

Accurate and Fast Sequencing

Accurate and Fast Sequencing Data

Representative portion of an electropherogram (Panel A) generated using the prototype ProDye™ Terminator Sequencing System on a Spectrum Compact CE System. Injection was performed at 1.2kV for 4 seconds with Polymer7; Panel B shows raw data of standard sequencing run.

Integrated Touch Screen 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.
