Real-Time PCR System
The real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) system qTOWER 2.0 not only wins with its modern design, but also allows quantitative PCR in the established 96-well format, thus providing an open platform for each kind of qPCR plasticware, from 0.2 mL single tubes to 96-well microplates. The high-grade silver sample block of qTOWER 2.0 also guarantees a temperature homogeneity of 0.2°C over the entire block and is thus suited for any real-time PCR application, with up to six fluorescent dyes. In combination with the available gradient function, additional adaptation to different assays becomes easily possible. Furthermore, the qTOWER 2.0 is equipped with a patented fiber-optic shuttle system for optimal excitation and detection of a variety of known fluorescent dyes. The PC-based system also contains a wide spectrum of optimized analysis tools, including absolute and relative quantification, delta-delta cycle threshold (Ct) method, PCR efficiency, allelic discrimination, endpoint detection, and protein determination.
