You may already know that Thermo Fisher has discontinued the ABI 3130/xL consumables and no longer offers service for this series. After utilizing your ABI 3130/xL capillary array to its max capacity, exploring alternative options for DNA analyzers is advisable. It would be cost-effective to replace the instrument rather than keep it in your lab.
We do not sell consumables for ABI 3130/xL. However, we will continue to provide service for ABI 3130/xL until it requires a replacement of the capillary array. We have received numerous questions from our customers asking if their ABI 3130/xL capillary array can be salvaged after encountering issues. The truth is, you may try to clean it with acid nitric. You can find the capillary array wash procedure here. Reach out to our service team if you need further assistance.
Through our Trade-In program, you can receive a credit of $3,000 for your current ABI 3130/xl and use it towards purchasing an ABI 3500/xl. Instead of waiting for your ABI 3130/xL to break down, consider upgrading to the 3500 Series DNA Analyzer and save on costs.
The ABI 3500 Series Genetic Analyzer is an improved version of the ABI 3130 Series Genetic Analyzer. It is more sensitive, powerful, stable, energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, and easier to use. It has a higher capillary array capacity than its predecessor. The ABI 3500 can hold up to 8 capillaries, while the ABI 3500xL can hold up to 24. This can save you significant time during busy weeks while also improving efficiency. Simply inject it and wait for the result of hundreds of samples.
The ABI 3500/xL features with pre-packed and ready-to-use reagent. You won't have to worry about refilling the reagents in the polymer bottle.
The ABI 3500/xL Series includes Data Collection Software and Secondary Analysis Software options. The user interface of the software is simple and convenient for inputting data. It also assists in identifying failed samples and re-injecting them. The different analysis software options allow you to normalize and minimize all applications across instruments and capillaries.
Enhance your lab experience with the ABI 3500/xL Series. Save costs by recycling your old ABI 3130/xL with us. Take this opportunity to upgrade.
