Eco 48 Real Time PCR System from PCRmax
Product News Feb 19, 2015
The Eco 48 real time PCR system from PCRmax, a Bibby Scientific company, has shown itself to have world leading uniformity of ±0.1˚C across the block, measured at 95 ˚C with no settle time. In comparison to other systems, the Eco has proven that its unique heating and cooling system provides exceptionally accurate temperature control, so that researchers can always be completely confident in their results.
One failed run in Next Generation Sequencing is a huge cost on the laboratory, and so by implementing the Eco system, there is potential for significant cost savings. The instrument is reliable for 430,000 cycles, still maintaining the ±0.1˚C uniformity after what equates to 35 year’s use.
With MIQE compliance and qualified PCR procedures being critically important, Eco 48 thermal cyclers deliver complete consistency and confidence across the board. The instrument records data from every well with every filter in every cycle, so there is never any fear of a point being missed or misread.
The adaptive LED control high-performance optical system installed in the system also removes any uncertainty as to whether unknowns have saturated or are bleaching through light to neighbouring cells - researchers can trust that their result is the correct result, every time.
