Bio-Rad Launches CFX Manager™ Software for Real-Time PCR
Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. today announced the launch of its CFX Manager software version 3.1. The software allows users to quickly and easily set up a real-time PCR experiment, assess data quality, and interpret results.
Bio-Rad’s CFX Manager software is compatible with all CFX platforms and features optimized run files for Bio-Rad’s wet-lab validated PrimePCR™ primer and probe assays, saving researchers time and money.
The updated CFX Manager software includes new features for allelic discrimination, including automatic genotype call assignments based on a proprietary clustering algorithm, the option to change calls directly in the allelic discrimination chart, and a feature that allows users to view a map of the calls directly on the plate view.
Version 3.1 also includes an improved CFX qualification plate workflow that enables researchers to verify the performance of the CFX real-time PCR system with just a few clicks. A PDF report with pass/fail results for each criterion is automatically generated after the experiment to help users assess their instrument’s performance.
For users that require mandatory login and audit trails for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, the security edition of the software is now compatible with all of Bio-Rad’s CFX real-time PCR detection systems, including the CFX96 Touch™ and CFX384 Touch™ systems.
