We have released an update for LongTrace that offers improved basecalling and support for the ABI 3100 sequencer (POP7 only).
We have released PeakTrace 2.4 DNA sequencing software. This version offer support for more ABI 310 and 3100 run conditions as well as improved basecalling and lower error rates. In addition, more traces with weak signal are able to be basecalled by PeakTrace.
We have released a major upgrade of the LongTrace software that offers improved basecalling and better looking traces for the ABI 3730, 3100, 3130 DNA sequencers. This release is a major rewrite of the LongTrace code and is significantly faster in trace processing. Removed from this version is the beta support for the ABI 3700 sequencer. For those users with 3700 sequencers we recommend using our PeakTrace basecaller instead as it provides much better support for a wider range of 3700 run conditions.
We have changed our credit card processing to Paypal. The reason for this change is the volume and size of orders we were processing via credit cards were too small to make it worthwhile continuing with the complex system we had (our credit card processing system was complex because we needed to be able to bill in US$ – something that is not easy to do from here in Australia). If you have any questions about this change please don’t hesitate to contact us.
We have released a new DNA sequencing basecaller called PeakTrace designed to improve the read length obtain from all ABI DNA sequencers. This software can improve trace read lengths by up to 100% and is compatible with the ABI377, ABI3700, ABI310, ABI3100, ABI3130, and ABI3730. We have also made available a free version of PeakTrace basecaller to allow potential customers to try PeakTrace on their own traces.
We have reduced the price of our LongTrace FTP-based service by 20 to 35%. This has been achieved by the recent changes we have made to our processing infrastructure that have reduced our costs which we have passed on to our customers. The cost of the FTP online processing size is now ranges from 12 to 25 cents per improved trace.
We have released a major upgrade of the LongTrace DNA sequencing system. This upgrade offers improved read lengths, better basecalling at the 5′ end (front) of the trace, and support for the ABI 3700 DNA sequencer.
We have released a standalone version of the LongTrace software. This system (called LongTrace:Box) allows sequencing facilities to access the read lengths and throughput improvements offered by LongTrace without the need to ftp traces to our server. This makes the system ideal for high volume environments, or for users with strict data confidentiality requirements. For information more on LongTrace:Box system please visit the LongTrace:Box overview page.
The LongTrace FTP service has been launched. This offers a simple way for high volume users to access the LongTrace service. We are offering 100 free processing units (a $35 value) for all customers how sign up of for this service. To learn more about LongTrace FTP service please visit the LongTrace overview page.
We have added a DNA sequencing forum for our customers and visitors to ask question or discuss our products or DNA sequencing in general. Come and check it out.
