New CFX96 Touch Deep Well™ Real-Time PCR Instrument Enables Large-Volume qPCR Reactions

November 28, 2012 at 2:07 pm Leave a comment

The new CFX96 Touch Deep Well real-time PCR detection system joins Bio-Rad’s real-time PCR detection system family as the system for large-volume qPCR reactions (up to 125 µl). The system can accurately discriminate up to five targets in a single reaction well by using Bio-Rad’s solid-state optical technology (Figure 1). The optical system scans just above the sample plate to illuminate and detect from each well with high sensitivity and no cross talk.

In addition to using industry-leading optical technology, the system offers excellent thermal performance and uniformity for large-volume reactions by using Bio-Rad’s patented reduced-mass sample block (Figure 2). This sample block heats and cools more quickly than standard blocks, so average ramp rates are increased and overall run times are reduced. The system also incorporates a built-in thermal gradient for easy assay optimization in a single run.
