You must have CEQ™ 8000, 8800, or GeXP version 8.0, 9.0, or 10 installed before installing the GenomeLab™ Human STR Primer Kit Locus Tags. If you have a software version prior to version 8.0, please contact your local Beckman Coulter Representative to upgrade your software to version 8.0 or 9.0.
It is recommended to perform Binning Analysis on a representative population of samples being studied to generate an allele list for each STR Locus Tag. Refer to Binning Analysis in the User's Guide for more information.
Ensure that the extracted Locus Tag (.CQL) files are on your CEQ™/GeXP controller hard drive in a folder that can be easily located during Step 4.
Launch the CEQ/GenomeLab software.
Select "Database Management", right-click onto the "Working Database" (the database you would like to import these STR Locus Tags into) and select "Import'.
Select the Locus Tags (.CQL) files from the location they were previously extracted into.
The files will then place themselves under the Locus Tags Folder for the Working Database.
Download the file, STR_Locus_Tags.zip. Extract the ZIP file into a new folder on your CEQ™/GeXP controller hard drive. After extracting the ZIP file, there should be twelve .CQL files present. Note the location of these newly extracted .CQL files.
