At the “Developments in Real-Time PCR” Symposium in Prague, June 13th - 17th http://www.qpcrsymposium.eu/ , Roche officially presented the latest addition to the company’s real-time PCR portfolio of LightCycler® instruments.

The LightCycler® Nano instrument is being targeted at users expecting top performance in times of tight budgets.

At the exhibition of the Prague symposium, Roche representatives demonstrated the excellent characteristics of the 32-well instrument.

The system’s innovative approach, both regarding optics and thermal control, results in an extremely low variation of well-to-well performance that could only previously be achieved by higher-priced instruments.

The instrument and its software can be used with all computer operating systems, including Apple, Windows-PC and Linux.

Instead of miniaturized disposables, PCR strips are used to further optimize the convenient handling of the instrument. These PCR strips are offered bundled together with proven high quality PCR reagents at a very attractive price.

“PCR users primarily care about the quality of their research. They expect their instrumentation to be enjoyable and convenient to use and that it fits into their working environment,” said Gerd Haberhausen, Life Cycle Leader qPCR and Nucleic Acid Preparation at Roche Applied Science.

Haberhausen continued, “The LightCycler® Nano System satisfies these expectations by delivering excellent research results and still being enjoyable to work with”.

Roche expects to start shipping LightCycler® Nano Instrument packages in early July.
