ABI3730XL Important Updates

The GBCF recently received funds to refresh the ABI3730xl DNA Analyzer which includes a major update that is critical to the long term functioning of the system. In order to complete this update we will need to shut down the instrument for a period of time. Please note the following dates.
ABI3730xl services including Sanger Sequencing and Fragment Analysis will be temporarily suspended from August 22- 25 to perform this update, with services resuming on Friday August 26. 
The calendar will remain open for regularly scheduled Sanger sequencing sample drop off during this time, however samples will not be processed until the update is completed.
The last day to submit for these services prior to the update is Wednesday, August 17th at 2:00pm . Please submit your order for the selected services in iLab and drop off your samples prior to 2:00pm so that we can ensure your sample will be processed.
Please contact me (Stephens.49@nd.edu, 1-0338) if you have any concerns about this timeframe and I will help find a solution. We look forward to many more years of continued ABI support.
