BioMark™ HD System
The BioMark™ HD System stands alone in the world of analytical instrumentation as a multi-application platform without compromise—providing high quality results for every experimental approach.
Today’s biological research requires a systems approach and the BioMark HD System now has even greater impact on your understanding of your biological system by producing high quality data from RNA, miRNA, DNA, and proteins. Leading this biological insight is the system’s proven and published capabilities to uncover gene expression at the single-cell level.
The BioMark™ HD System provides you with the ability to use a wide variety of sample types, multiple chemistry choices, and an industry leading degree of flexibility with no compromise in performance. The system offers unparalleled throughput for real-time PCR and digital PCR, integrating thermal cycling and fluorescence detection on integrated fluidic circuits (IFCs).
With a Fluidigm Dynamic Array IFC, high-throughput multiplexing is easy. The microfluidic architecture does the work of combining samples and primer-probe sets into 9,216 simultaneous PCR reactions. That's 24-fold more data than that produced by a 384-well plate. This radical advance in experimental density is fully leveraged through a hardware/software system that automates setup and ata anylsis.
The Fluidigm Digital PCR software includes features specific to digital PCR, including: Real-time digital PCR specificity analysis; Multiplex capability using reporter dyes; Copy number variation using statistical correction; End-point analysis.
