Patent pending Integrated Thermal Control (ITC) forms the basis
of this system. It has long been recognised that intra-sample
variations caused by thermal gradients within metal block or
air-heating systems causes differences in the final product
(quantity and quality).
ITC uses the concept of directly heating the vessel containing
the reaction mix and in addition having a single temperature
sensor for each vessel to ensure truly independent thermal control.
Direct heating also has a significant effect on thermal transfer
rates as does the ‘capillary’ design of the reaction
vessel (allows for a high surface to volume ratio) both leading
ULTRA-RAPID Thermal Cycling.
throughput, cleaner reaction products and the ability to run reactions
with different thermal profiles are significant advantages of this
technology e.g. running gradients for process optimisation, multiple
different tests on the same sample in diagnostic applications where
time to report results is critical and high throughput screening.
uses leading edge technology to ensure that the thermal performance
is matched by fast, sensitive optics. A compact, high lifetime
(10,000 hour) solid-state laser provides an intense, well-collimated
pure light source at 473nm (compatible with all standard chemistries,
dyes and dye sets). A multi-channel PMT collects all emitted
wavelengths between 520 and 720nm-the system is not constrained
by use of filter sets to detect fixed bands of emitted fluorescence.
This allows the user to ‘see the full picture’!
High scan rates (full plate read up to once every 3 seconds)
provide good data sets for use in subsequent analysis.
This product contains ITC - Integrated Thermal
Control (Patent Pending).
