qTOWER 2.0/2.2 models offer quantitative real-time PCR with proven 96 well standard SBS format. Top-reading fluorescence detection design has patented high performance optical components with color and FRET modules for excitation and emission.
Systems feature state-of-the-art heating rates up to 5.5°C/sec and cooling rates of 4.0°C/sec. High-speed scan capability as fast as 6 sec. for a 96 well microplate. Flexible use of different optical plastic materials: 0.2ml tubes, 8 well strips or 96 well microplates.
qTOWER 2.2 offers gradient function across 12 columns with a max. temperature range of 40°C
Select from interchangeable color and FRET modules (ordered separately) to meet specific wavelength requirements. Modules are placed in up to 6 positions. Depending on the application, it can be adapted to either intercalating dyes, hydrolysis probes or hybridization probes (FRET probes).
The thermal block is made of gold-coated silver to achieve the best possible performance and maximum thermal conductivity resulting outstanding homogeneity and uniformity of temperature.
qPCRsoft quantitative analysis software (MIQE compliant) which loads on your PC. The program can determine PCR efficiencies and perform aboslute and relative quantifications as well as delta-delta Ct method and allele discrimination.
10 years on optics components; 2 years on the system and thermal block.
