Simple to use and great results!
Application Area: Gene expression analysis
"We bought this instrument to substitute an old Bio-Rad fluorescent system. The instrument and especially the software are very simple to use, very customizable. The course with the Bio-Rad technician was very useful to understand all the features of the CFX system. We use it to analyze gene expression using SYBR Green technology. The instrument is equipped with a LED lamp that doesn't need the same maintenance as the old fluorescent lamp."

Without this instrument we are not published any paper from our lab after its purchase.
Application Area:Gene expression study in various disease to establish disease etiology
"Bio-Rad real-time PCR machine is awesome in performance and handling. Very user friendly software. I have been using it for 2 years and to date, I face neither any problem or any complaint by my colleagues. In our lab this is one of the most important instrument which on six days a week. "

"This is an easy-to-use, straightforward PCR thermal cycler widely used among molecular biology laboratories throughout the world. Whether you are performing gene expression analyses or copy number variation assays, with the CFX96 you can produce results in less than 30 minutes thanks to the fast thermal cycling; minimize sample and reagent usage, obtaining optimal results with sample volumes as low as 10 microliters, and analyse your results when and where you want with the software which can send an email notification with attached results when a run is finished. I want to highly recommend this product as a powerful tool for your genomic research, providing the reliability you need to boost your discovery! "

"Overall the instrument is handy but it does not allow you to run all samples amplified with primers tagged with all types of fluorophores. For example I cannot detect signal from PCR with Cy5 tagged primers. I would recommend making sure it filters for your choice of fluorophores."
Manufacturer's Response"The three channel CFX Connect optical hardware is specifically designed to detect up to two fluorophores per well within an excitation/emission spectral range between 450-580 nm. This spectral range was selected to offer an affordable instrument that supports the most commonly selected dyes for duplex experiments and single color experiments using intercalating dyes. The spectral range for Cy5 is located in the far red spectrum. For greater flexibility in fluorophore selection and the ability to accommodate Cy dyes, the CFX96 Touch system offers the ability to detect the full spectrum of fluorophores from 450-730 nm.
Warmest regards, Rachel Scott"
