Á???????ÁThe oven assembly, part number 628©0320, is a component of the ABI Prism 3100 Genetic Analyzer, which is a fluorescence©based DNA analysis system. The oven assembly, located on the top right side of the analyzer, is an enclosed compartment, approximately 4 by 1 1/2 feet, housing two fan units, heating elements, a temperature sensor and plastic insulators.
