21 Aug 2017


TATAA Biocenter, a leading global provider of hands-on training in molecular analysis, expands its qPCR instruments park in Gothenburg, Sweden, with the qTOWER3 thermocycler by German instruments vendor Analytik Jena.

“People come from all around the world to TATAA to be trained in qPCR, and they expect to get the chance to try out the best qPCR instruments there are. The qTOWER3 is certainly one of them, and it will become an attractive option to those looking for a new instrument,” says Dr. Mikael Kubista, founder and CEO of TATAA Biocenter.

The courses are arranged around the world and supported by all the leading instrument and solution providers in molecular analyses. TATAA has been also instrumental in the quality control and standardization of molecular testing, as a member of the European projects SPIDIA and CANCER-ID, which are projects for standardizing the pre-analytical steps and blood based analyses, respectively.

“We are very proud of the collaboration with TATAA Biocenter. Now, we have the possibility to compare the qTOWER³ to similar qPCR instruments on the market. It is perfect for us to give users an opportunity to test it side-by-side alongside other instruments on the market at the TATAA courses,” says Melanie Jahn, Product Manager at Analytik Jena.
