  • The heterozygote analysis tool analyzes one or multiple Sanger trace files and reports on all possible heterozygotes.

  • The tool works on multiple trace files in the Assembly project manager or the Align to Reference editor.
  • You can also basecall heterozygotes in a trace file in the Single Trace Editor.
  • Heterozygous analysis of a single trace file

  • As usual there’s many bug fixes and changes that you probably don’t care too much about! But be assured that all we do keeps MacVector future proof and to be a modern macOS application that you can rely on.

How to upgrade to MacVector 18.5

If you have a maintenance contract that was active on 1st November, 2022, then you can install MacVector 18.5. You must be running macOS High Sierra to macOS Ventura. You will be prompted to automatically update within the next few days.
You can also download the installer and do it manually now.

If you have an older version of MacVector then download the trial and request an upgrade quote.

Even if you have downloaded the trial in the past then downloading a new trial will give you a fresh 21 days to evaluate MacVector.

When a trial license expires it becomes MacVector Free. So if you decide against upgrading then you can just delete the trial license and easily go back to your current version. It’s risk free as MacVector files are backwards compatible.
