The SOLiD™ EZ Bead™ System provides an automated solution for reproducible templated bead preparation in less than 1 hour of hands-on time. The system modularity and quality control checkpoints provide greater experimental control. Additional support for multiplexed libraries further maximizes time and cost savings.
The SOLiD® EZ Bead™ System automates the SOLiD® System workflow from emulsion PCR (ePCR) to templated bead deposition. The availability of pre-packaged reagents minimizes handling errors and improves the quality and quantity of templated beads. With less than 1 hour of hands-on time, sample preparation time is reduced by up to 80%.
This package includes the SOLiD™ EZ Bead™ Enricher, Emulsifier and Amplifier. All three of these instruments were made in May of 2010 as a matched set. The Emulsifier and the Enricher both run on 100-240VAC and the Amplifier on 220VAC only. ABI part numbers are 4449181 for the Enricher, 4449180 for the Amplifier, and 4449179 for the emulsifier. All power cords are included. We do not provide technical support or software, and consumables must be obtained by the buyer through ABI or other sources. We are selling these as-is, although we have checked them for power up and saw them being used slightly before we bought them from a cancer research facility in Vancouver BC. We do give the buyer a 30-day right of return if this should not be what you’re looking for.
Due to the size and weight of these machines they will be crated by us for shipping. The cost of crating ($250) is included in the price here, although if the customer wishes to pick them up here at our shop in Sonora California we will remove that fee. Our crates are bulletproof with 3/4″ 7-ply maple plywood and lined with 2″ foam rubber and all instruments and carefully palletwrapped and bubblewrapped. We ship them this way to avoid any damages in transit and insure the shipment for full value just in case of damage, which is very rare.
These instruments are in excellent condition and have been well-maintained. We are offering these for about what we paid for them, simply because our lab here does not use this system. Although we work with many other ABI systems, including service and repair of ABI Sequencers and Thermal Cyclers this is one ABI system that we do not. We are open to offers, but really this is a good price.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us here and we will get back to you ASAP. We pride ourselves on our customer service and want to make sure you are buying what you need.
