qPCR system allows users to get the most from their research.

Techne is introducing software updates and new documentation for its PrimeQ instrument range, designed to help researchers use their qPCR system in the most efficient and effective way possible.

Now freely available online is the upgraded version of PrimeQ’s Quansoft software as well as new PCR certificates and declaration of conformity certificates.

A selection of useful new technical and application notes can also be downloaded, covering topics ranging from the principle of Absolute Quantification Analysis and High Resolution Melting through to minimizing sample volumes and an analysis of different manufacturers’ consumable kits.

Launched in early 2012, Techne PrimeQ instruments provide efficient real-time PCR systems that keep running costs to a minimum, since there is no commitment to particular consumables and no need for additional licenses.

The open chemistry format, use of universal consumables and large variety of excitation and emission filters allows users maximum flexibility.

Jim Bratherton, Techne Product Manager at Bibby Scientific comments, “PrimeQ is an economical investment for 3 reasons. Firstly our policy to provide free software licenses and upgrades for life, secondly the 96-well format of PrimeQ allows the use of almost any low-profile qPCR plates and thirdly, the open chemistry format of PrimeQ provides the ability to use most manufacturer’s reagent kits”.
