Spectrum Compact CE Instrument

Share this Article

We developed the Spectrum Family of CE instruments with the day-to-day challenges of the forensic analyst in mind. With the recently launched Spectrum Compact CE System, fast run times and the ability to run partial plates without wasting reagents will get you from A to B with the least amount of fuss. Even better, the small footprint saves the precious bench space you need to get your work done. Independent, easy to install consumables and an integrated touchscreen make for easy operation of the Spectrum Compact CE System.

The Spectrum Compact CE System, together with its associated analysis software, maintains backward compatibility to support existing 5- and 6-color STR kits from multiple vendors.

Laboratories which typically process a smaller number of samples each month may find that the Spectrum Compact is the perfect fit for their lab. It processes up to 32 samples in a single run and can be controlled by either the integrated touchscreen or by additional software that allows access from any registered computer on the same network.

Running out of bench space? Don’t need RFID plate detection or high throughput? On a tight lab budget? The Spectrum Compact CE System is perfect for you. Not only is the Spectrum Compact CE System simple to set up and operate, related consumables such as pre-filled buffers and polymer are available in convenient packaging. All consumables use 2D barcoding to track key information.

The Spectrum Compact CE System is now available for purchase! Learn more about how Spectrum Compact can improve your lab's workflow.
