This instrument was purchased brand new by a major bioscience company in Utah and was never used, so everything is in perfect shape except for the USB in the bottom of the cabinet. Probably the battery pack is dead because this has been sitting for a while. We bypassed the UPS and were able to check power up functions and get into the software program and found no problems with this machine. Included in this package are users and service manuals as well as the software and various cords. We are selling this machine as is with no technical support or help with setup. We do not supply consumables.
Our price listed in this ad includes $200 for crating for shipping. Most of the machines online are not in working order, missing pieces, software or the server computer. This one is not. It is as complete as the day it came off the factory floor. For anyone still using these machines this would be a good replacement if your machine is breaking down. We realize that Roche has stopped supporting these machines and finding service for them is getting very difficult. Hopefully the buyer will still have reagents and consumables because they are getting very hard to find. We do not provide these.
Any questions please contact us here and we will be happy to answer you, if we can. We don’t normally work with these machines so we aren’t experts on how they operate. But we know a good machine when we see one, and this is a great one!
