Dear Bosse,

We're currently using these fast-cycle sin our system. You need a
micro-cartridge similar as used in the more recent ABI sequencers. They're
available from ABI, but they're quite expensive (as all ABI products). I
think you can get an application note from them as well. Cycling times are
now indeed only 25 minutes. The performance (repetitive yield) of the
instrument is equal or better than with the long cycling times.
