  • CFX96 Touch™ Real–Time PCR Detection System (185-5196)

"Great performer. It runs fast chemistry from multiple suppliers with equal efficiency. Software is easy to navigate and intuitive. It is a workhorse- it's run day and night with no problems (no overheating etc). Not particularly easy to adjust baseline value- can cause anomalies in efficiency values."

Description

The CFX96 Touch Deep Well real-time PCR detection system offers precise quantification and target discrimination for up to 5 targets in large-volume reactions.

The system incorporates industry-leading technology and stand-alone functionality to provide a robust and easy-to-use qPCR instrument for reliable results.

To obtain reliable, consistent results, all sample wells must maintain proper temperature throughout each incubation step. The CFX96 Touch™ and CFX96 Touch Deep Well™ systems use six independently controlled thermal electric modules (TEs), the heating and cooling elements of the thermal cycler, to maintain tight temperature uniformity at all points during a run — even while ramping.

The CFX96 Touch Deep Well system produces high average ramp rates and tight uniformity during ramping to yield fast time to target temperature and faster protocol run times. Run times can be dramatically shortened — to less than 30 min — while still producing accurate quantitative results.

CFX96 Touch Deep Well™ systems' solid-state optical technology (six filtered LEDs and six filtered photodiodes) provides sensitive detection for precise quantification and target discrimination. The system can discriminate up to five targets in a single reaction well.

With the CFX96 Touch Deep Well™ system, you can easily determine the optimal temperature of your assay in a single experiment, saving valuable research time. Using the built-in thermal gradient, you can program up to 24°C across the reaction block at any step in your protocol. The thermal cycler provides exceptional temperature uniformity and reproducibility within each gradient zone.


CFX96 Touch Deep Well Real–Time PCR Detection System (185–5196) Features and Benefits:

  • Minimal setup with factory-calibrated dyes
  • Easy viewing of real-time data traces with integrated LCD touch screen
  • Fast experiment optimization with built-in thermal gradient
  • User-friendly data analysis modules with CFX Manager™ software
  • Effortless export of RDML files for import into qbasePLUS software
