LightCycler® 2.0 Instrument

Product Description
Conforms to the European directive for in vitro diagnostic medical devices 98/79/EC.

The LightCycler® 2.0 Instrument allows you to monitor amplification of 32 PCR products simultaneously, in real-time and online, with six different detection channels. The LightCycler® Software 4.1 collects fluorescence data from all six channels at each cycle and displays it immediately. This enables you to terminate PCR runs early if signal levels are adequate, or prolong them when signals are too low. Amplification occurs in specially designed reaction capillaries. Their superior surface-to-volume ratio provides extremely rapid thermal transfer, which facilitates high-speed thermal cycling. The combination of LightCycler® Capillaries and the air-driven temperature control of the LightCycler® 2.0 Instrument ensures rapid PCR. An entire 35-cycle run can be performed in as little as 30 minutes (with 20 µl capillaries) to 60 minutes (with 100 µl capillaries).
Fluorescence detection formats: The LightCycler® 2.0 Instrument is optimized for two fluorescence detection formats: SYBR Green I, HybProbe probes, and hydrolysis probes. In addition, the instrument supports a wide variety of other fluorescence detection formats, such as monocolor SimpleProbe probes and other formats based on FRET (fluorescence resonance energy transfer). However, it is essential that the fluorescent dyes used are compatible with the LightCycler® 2.0 optical unit.

Software: The LightCycler® 2.0 Instrument utilizes the LightCycler® Software 4.1, an optimized version of the LightCycler® 4.0 and 4.05 Software, which provides advanced data-analysis modules, efficient data management, and effective data protection.
