Still Running Windows XP?

Win7 DC3.jpgSeqGen is dedicated to our customers and your machines. Your concerns become our concerns. We have been receiving many emails and phone calls from our customers asking if they have to upgrade their sequencing and fragment analysis software to work on the Windows 7 operating system. Like many major updates with these machines, this can run you a pretty penny, and you’ll want to make sure you actually need the update before you blow your budget.

You may have gotten a notice from your manufacturer saying that in order to have the best security and efficiency for your machines, your software should be replaced to run under Windows 7. It may not sound like much of a setback; that is until they mention the multi thousands of dollars that you will need to find within your budget to upgrade your data collection software! THAT is quite the setback.

So is all of this necessary?

The main reason you’re being asked to update your system is for security purposes. The old Windows XP operating system has a few holes in it, and is no longer supported by Microsoft. This leaves you wide open for attack from cyber terrorists. Since you’ve been told that your data collection software provided by the manufacturer does not work with the new operating system, you’ve been led to believe that you must upgrade this software to the tune of thousands!

We know you love your 3730/xl and 3130/xl machines just the way they are, and paying for an expensive unneeded update may not be a change you want to consider. Since we do insist that you update your operating system to Windows 7 if you intend to connect your computer to the internet, we also have some excellent news for you.

SeqGen is now able to upgrade your computer and operating system to the Windows 7 platform and you do not have to upgrade your data collection software! Additionally, we are bringing the whole package to you for just $1500 plus shipping and handling. You will still have to learn the new operating system, but this is a much more manageable switch for your pocket book. And of course you can expect the same great service from us you’ve come to know and love.

Our goal at SeqGen is to make sure your machines are running smoothly and efficiently. We are here to offer our dependable customer service and support to keep the costs under control for any new upgrade. If you have any questions, or want to learn more, please don’t hesitate to give us a call! Stay tuned for cost saving tips concerning Windows 7 and your SDS software next week!
