GNA Biosolutions GmbH will be showcasing the Pharos V8, a cutting-edge Laser PCR instrument based on the company’s proprietary Pulse Controlled Amplification (PCA) technology at the analytica trade fair booth A3/522, in Munich, Germany from April 10-13. Launched in November 2017, the Pharos V8 delivers ultrafast PCR results in 10 minutes or less.
Conventional PCR platforms rely on bulky thermocyclers that limit the speed of the reaction. The Pharos V8 is the world’s first Laser PCR instrument powered by PCA, a novel patented technology developed by GNA Biosolutions.

Lars Ullerich, Managing Director GNA Biosolutions states, "PCA is a completely unique and exciting approach to PCR that takes something fundamental and pushes it further. The Pharos V8 instrument delivers results with high sensitivity and unparalleled speed and makes PCR even more useful; it creates new possibilities for a range of different applications across multiple industries."
In addition to the Pharos V8, GNA Biosolutions is implementing Laser PCR in an integrated sample-preparation system, as part of a consortium focused on MRSA detection. The company also recently completed successful Laser PCR field tests for Ebola RNA virus detection in Sierra Leone as part of a publicly funded project.
