    One should remember, that ABI capillary array is made of glass capillaries coated with polymer on the outside, so provided they are kept clean from POP7 on the inside, they may outlast the electrolytic capacitors inside the instrument in storage.... (I would say decades for shelf life).
    Obviously the polymer coating on the outside may degrade/crumble first (especially if stored in a cupboard, that is emitting formaldehyde vapours from cheap particle board).

    When changing the capillary array, make sure to perform the water wash before removal of the old array, followed by capillary rinse with MiliQ water
    (Manual control->Polymer delivery pupm -> fill 80cm array), and do this fill for 20 - 200 times:

    Make sure to store old array ONLY in water filled state!
    PS: I do hope that some after-market manufacturer(s) starts making compatible arrays for ABI machines.
    Thanks for the advice!

    started a topic ABI 3130xl 50 cm Array NOS Lifetime

    ABI 3130xl 50 cm Array NOS Lifetime

    How long is an ABI 3130xl 50 cm array if its never been opened and/or used? In other words, what's its shelf-life?

    Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
    by seqadmin




    The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

    Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
    by seqadmin


    In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
