ViiA™ 7 Real-Time PCR System
"It’s a really easy to use machine, does exactly what is required of it, however, the software is impossible. It is not intuitive, the software doesn’t allow the run to start when something is programmed wrongly. Normally, this would be a good thing, however it DOES NOT tell you what went wrong with the programming so that you can fix it.
When exporting to excel, it has one fixed format, exporting by rows, and cannot be changed to export by column.
Also when making selections of genes/samples in labelling, you have to click directly on the tick boxes, clicking on the words does not make the selection. This may seem trivial, but is really not helpful when you have to click a small .5*.5 sized box to make your selection.
It’s a great machine, but really, software could be a whole lot better and more user friendly to make it better."
