Buying new equipment for a lab can be incredibly costly. Even with an immediate need for the equipment, it can still take a significant amount of time before the equipment will pay for itself.
This is particularly true for a major purchase such as an Applied Biosystems 3730 DNA Analyzer. This equipment is often considered the top of the line for medium-sized to large labs that have the need for increased throughput speeds and higher volume testing requirements.
The benefits of the Applied Biosystems 3730 DNA Analyzer make the cost of a system well worth considering. The additional volume of testing that can be completed as well as the advanced options in testing possibilities can provide a lab with significant enhancements to their existing DNA analysis capabilities.
A simple solution to the very high cost of a new unit is to consider a refurbished 3730 DNA analyzer. By choosing one from a highly reputable pre-owned medical equipment dealer and choosing a warranty, it offers the same protection as a new model but at a significant cost savings.
Better Data Quality
When upgrading to an Applied Biosystems 3730 DNA Analyzer from an older model or a different model, there will be a corresponding increase in quality of data. This will allow for a lower cost per sample, which is critical for any facility.
With an improvement in results and data, there is no need to repeat testing. This alone will save money, which is an important consideration for the future. The improvement in data is through the use of better quality optical sensitivity and advanced options in polymers.
With the 3730 system, the operator can load the samples and then the equipment can continue to operate for up to 48 hours with run times longer than30 minutes without any need for operator attention.
This also decreased the risk of operator error while ensuring that the bar code reader and the integrated plate stacker always read and record data accurately and consistently with every run.
