Spectrum Compact, A Capillary Electrophoresis On Your Benchtop

Spectrum Compact, A Capillary Electrophoresis On Your Benchtop

Here’s the good news: The Spectrum Compact CE System is now available from Promega. 

Here’s the better news: Labs of all sizes now have the opportunity to perform Sanger sequencing and fragment analysis with a personal, benchtop instrument. 

There is no bad news. 

Capillary electrophoresis instruments are often too big or expensive for labs that only need to process a handful of samples. The Spectrum Compact CE system fits on your benchtop and easily fits into your workflow with flexible run scheduling and small batch sizes. With an integrated touchscreen and easy-to-use interface, the instrument is easily accessible to anyone in the lab.  

Promega Head of Research Doug Storts talks about the Spectrum Compact CE System

What is the Spectrum Compact CE System? 

The Spectrum Compact CE System is a 4-capillary benchtop CE instrument that gives you total control over your workflow. It processes up to 32 samples in a single run and comes with pre-loaded protocols for commercially available STR kits. Separate plug-and-play consumables with 2D barcode gracking help you make the decision on when to replace each one.  

One Compact System Optimized For a Broad Range of Applications

Sanger Sequencing

  • De novo sequencing
  • NGS confirmation
  • Resequencing
  • Mutation detection
  • Mitochondrial sequencing

    Fragment Analysis

    • Microsatellites
    • PCR sizing
    • SNP genotyping
    • And many more...
                                                 

    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.                                                  
    The Spectrum Compact CE System is available in Ireland through Mybio. On-site installation and operational training are included with purchase of the instrument and Promega scientists are available to help with validation, applications training and preventive maintenance.
