Click to ViewCapillary electrophoresis-Capillary electrophoresis offers several performance advantages for DNA analysis, compared with slab-gel techniques. The efficient heat dissipation of capillaries, along with a detection cell heater, provides enhanced thermal control, which results in more consistent runs and faster run times. Samples are simultaneously injected into the parallel 4- -capillary array in less than 30 seconds. Automated polymer delivery system-The System requires only sample preparation and creation of sample information for 24-hour continuous, unattended operation. Instrument set-up consists of filling the buffer reservoirs and attaching the polymer bottle. Flowable polymer is loaded into the capillaries prior to each run. Samples are injected and run according to conditions you specify. Data is collected and analyzed; the files are then available for direct transfer to a database for further analysis and reporting. Enhanced thermal control-The detection cell heater offers superior resolution and sizing precision, as well as improved thermal control. The new, higher temperature (60°C) 3130 POP-7™ Polymer run modules take advantage of the enhanced thermal control and improve run-to-run consistency. Detection method designed for sensitivity -The key to cost-effective and accurate nucleic acid analysis is uniform maximization of the amount of signal per sample. The detection system in the 3130 instruments is designed with this in mind. As the DNA passes through the detection cell, a laser beam simultaneously illuminates the capillaries from both sides of the array. The emitted fluorescent light is collected, separated by wavelength, and focused onto a charge coupled device (CCD). Spectral array detection-When the fluorescent light has been collected and dispersed across the CCD, the data are transferred to the instrument computer where they are transformed by chemometric algorithmic processing into 4- or 5-dye electropherograms.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewIt is a 4 capillary system of electrophoresis system and determines DNA fragment size with great accuracy. The DNA fragment is labelled with florescent dyes which are detected by a detector. Electrophoresis at very high voltage and presence of internal size standard in each sample ensures high resolution and accurate sizing.
