Warranty: 90-Day Full Parts and Labor (Click for Info)
Typically Ships Within: 1 to 3 Business Days


The Beckman Coulter P/ACE MDQ capillary electrophoresis system has a modular design that can be quickly adjusted for research purpose or for routine use. The system comes with a photo diode array, selectable-wavelength UV/Vis detector with 200, 214, 254 and 280 nm filters, UV source optics, temperature-controlled sample storage module and a desktop controller with 32 Karat software. The P/ACE MDQ boasts a wide range of features, including multi-format sample introduction, methods development with 36 position buffer array, multiple separation modes, high sensitivity UV detector, GLP/CGMP compliance features, optional dual wavelength laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) detection system, specialized CE calculations, sample tray temperature control, electrokinetic, pressure and vacuum sample introduction, variable pressure and vacuum fluid delivery, diode-array detection, modular detectors plus a host of other features.

The automated multi-format sample introduction in P/ACE MDQ is carried out using well plates, 2 mL vials, PCR vials and 0.5 mL tubes. This versatility in sample introduction leads to easier sample handling, increased capacity and enhanced compatibility with automated sample preparation devices. The system features multiple separation modes – voltage, current, power, pressure, and vacuum. The high sensitivity UV detector with selectable wavelength allows varying wavelength during a run. The diode array detector is ideal for high-resolution spectral scanning without affecting resolution. A 36 position buffer array helps in automated methods development strategies while simultaneously maintaining sample capacity.
