Faster MassARRAY® Workflow with Fast Ramping Thermal Cyclers
8 October 2015

This application note details an accelerated workflow with fast ramping thermal cyclers, which reduces the cycling time by almost 2 hours, enabling the entire workflow to be completed in a single eight-hour shift. Starting with purified DNA or RNA, genetic analysis with I PLEX® biochemistry on the MassARRAY System can be accomplished in a single day. The workflow requires minimal hands-on time (< 30 minutes), but with standard thermal cyclers the overall processing time can exceed 9.5 hours.
