The Prime Pro 48 real time qPCR system is a new, high specification, economically priced real time thermal cycler from Techne. Made in the UK, the Prime Pro 48 features the highest thermal block uniformity and fastest run time of any block-based qPCR system on the market.
The capacity of Prime Pro 48 accommodates a unique and economical 48-well qPCR plate. The well format mirrors a 384-well plate therefore allowing the use of 16-channel pipettes. The small qPCR plate cuts reagent costs in half whilst still producing a strong fluorescence signal. Minimizing the plate size also significantly improves thermal uniformity and greatly reduces run times.
• 40 cycles in 40 minutes before optimisation.
• 40 cycles in 15 minutes when optimised.
• Genotype in 4 minutes with over 99% accuracy.
• Set up a 4plex reaction in only 4 mouse clicks.
