I-Core Technology Smart Cycler Cepheid DNA/RNA Processing Block (401625)
The SmartCycler System is an integrated DNA/RNA amplification and detection instrument system based on Intelligent Cooling/Heating Optical Reaction module.
- SmartCycler Software provides excellent ease of use
- Ideally suited to research such as PCR and RT-PCR that requires automatic, repeated, rapid heating and cooling cycles for test samples.
The system has the capacity to store any number of user-generated protocols, limited only by available disk space. All data, including cycling programs and assay results, are storable in a database. Users are able to export data into spreadsheets such as Microsoft Excel.
Cepheid’s SmartCycler instrument is the only random access, modular real-time PCR instrument on the market with up to 96 sites that can each run a different protocol.
