Thermal Cyclers for Real Time PCR

qTower3
Analytic Jena's qTower3 thermal cycler guarantees high performance through precise temperature control along the entire block and unlike common instruments on the market and regardless of the number of samples. Specifically, these instruments are characterized by:
- patent optical system that ensures high reproducibility in all block positions;
- Innovative block technology to ensure thermal uniformity in each well;
- Availability of various filters
- qPCRsoft software for reaction setup and data analysis.
Also available in a touch version for controlling the machine without connection to a PC.

AriaMx
AriaMx is the ideal solution for data amplification, detection, and analysis because it combines a state-of-the-art thermal cycler, an advanced optical system with an LED excitation source, and software for comprehensive data analysis. The instrument can hold up to six optical modules, and the design of the scanning optics ensures optimal separation between dyes and between samples. The instrument provides a closed-tube PCR detection format that can be used in numerous fluorescence detection chemistries, including SYBR® Green and EvaGreen dyes as well as fluorogenic probe systems including TaqMan probes.

Technical characteristics:
- Allows for gene expression analysis, genotyping, HRM, mRNA quantification, and NGS quantification
- Exchangeable optical cartridges (ROX, FAM, HEX, CY5, CY3, ATTO 425) can be used.
- The acquisition time is < 3 s/plate
- Peltier block compatible with 0.2-mL low profile tubes, strips and 96-well plates. The instrument has a built-in diagnostic system to help the user identify problems in the test or concerning the functionality of the instrument.
