WAVE MD System Model 4000


The WAVE MD System Model 4000 has been designed with ease of use as the primary feature. The Model 4000 Plus is the ideal tool for nucleic acid analysis. Like the WAVE System 3500 series, the WAVE MD uses high performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC). This system is ideal for laboratories processing up to 100 samples a day.

WAVE Systems may be used for a wide range of applications including:

  • Mutation Detection
  • Sizing
  • Oligonucleotide Purification and Analysis
  • Forensics li>Microbial Analysis
  • RNA Isolation and Purification
  • Single Base Extension
  • Methylation


  • Scan fragments for both known and novel mutations/SNPs without extensive re-sequencing
  • Detect low-abundance mutations in heterogeneous samples
  • Enrich for low-abundance alleles
  • Fractionate complex mixtures of related fragments based on differences in sequence content
  • Perform targeted mutation/SNP scoring via primer extension assays
  • Analyze end-point products from allele-specific PCR, RT-PCR assays.
