1 Will allow analysis of a batch of 96 single source samples and/or complex mixtures, but may require additional memory for larger batch sizes.

2 Will allow analysis of a batch of 96 single source samples and/or complex mixtures and analysis interactions on groups of multi-selected peaks and/or samples simultaneously. May require additional memory for larger batch sizes.

3 Will comfortably allow analysis of a batch of 96 or more single source samples and/or complex mixtures and analysis interactions on groups of multi-selected peaks and/or samples simultaneously. May require additional memory for very large batch sizes (eg 250 plus samples).

4 This is the space required for the application itself and does not include the space required for results of FaSTR™ DNA runs.

5 Provisions should be made to anticipate that storage space requirements will continue to increase over time as more analyses are stored
