Q is intended for molecular biology applications. This product is not intended for the diagnosis, prevention or treatment of a disease.
Q uses a patented magnetic induction technology to rapidly heat samples coupled with fan forced air for cooling to acquire data in only 25 minutes. Available in 2 or 4 channel models, the robust optical system acquires all channels simultaneously and allows for running the fastest multiplexed assays.
Q’s miniature speaker-size and 4.5 pound weight make it the most portable and versatile qPCR cycler on the market without ever needing to calibrate. Q also provides scalability as each instrument can process up to 48 samples per run and up to 10 Q’s can be connected to a single computer wirelessly via bluetooth enabling up to 480 samples to be processed simultaneously.
A key difference is that Q incorporates a unique spinning aluminum rotor providing superior temperature uniformity of
± 0.05°C versus traditional block-based real time cyclers which rely on multiple peltier heating blocks that can create edge effects resulting in sample variation.
