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 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.
The our new DNA sequencing service for increasing sequence read length will be launched January 2006. This service allows the read length of DNA sequence traces to be improved through data reprocessing alone. For more about this exciting new service please visit the LongTrace DNA sequencing service page.
