Real-time PCR system combines technology with striking desing
Analytik Jena’s real-time PCR system qTOWER 2.0 not only wins over its modern design. It also allows a quantitative PCR in established 96 well format, thus providing an open platform for each kind of qPCR plastic ware from 0.2 mL single tubes to 96 well microplates. At the same time the high-grade silver sample block of qTOWER 2.0 guar-antees an outstanding temperature homogeneity of 0.2 °C over the entire block and is therefore ideal suited for any real-time PCR application with up to 6 fluorescent dyes. In combination with the available gradient function, an additional adaption to different assays becomes easily possible.
Furthermore the qTOWER 2.0 is equipped with a patented fiber optical shuttle system for optimal excitation and detection of a variety of known fluorescent dyes. Finally the PC based system contains a wide spectrum of optimized analy-sis tools including absolute and relative quantification, delta-delta Ct meth-od, PCR efficiency, allelic discrimination, endpoint detection and protein determination.
