  • 5500xl xenon lamp source

    Does anyone know the manufacturer source for the xenon lamp in the SOLiD5500xl? Interestingly, AB gives Part number 4467122 for this lamp in the 5500 operation manual, but this item does not show up in a part number search at the AB order site!

    Also, any experience on what the actual useful lifetime of the lamp is or experience with failure or performance reduction?

    Thanks,

    I was told It has been available on the website.
    Check appliedbiosystem.com and on the very top, click "quick order".

      Lamp

      The Lamp comes from Excelitas Technologies and is part of the Cermax Lamps line, part number Y1940.

      The default life is 1500 hours in ICS, then it tells you to change it. Our first lamp made it shortly over 2000hours before I got nervous and changed it. It was still working fine, but i did not want to risk it any longer. A normal 35+5bp run will suck ~125hours of life from the lamp and AB sells the new one for $900, I think... I pretty sure that's not calculated into their cost calculator. I wrote to the company about ordering direct and I'll post the price once I hear back from them.

      Product is exclusive to Hitachi... Waiting on Hitachi to reply now...

        light source

        Hi RickC7- I was wondering if you ever found an alternative source for the light, or if we must go through Lifetech? Thanks!

          No sorry, I wrote directly to Hitachi several times but never got an answer back.

          I took the old one apart and the lamp itself looks to be identical to the SOLiD4 lamps, just the housing is different. I suppose you could just switch the lamp in the housing, but I don't think it is worth the risk.

            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...
