Optimize Reactions in a Single Run
Determining the optimal temperature for primer annealing is crucial for efficient and specific amplification of product. With the CFX96 Touch™ system’s thermal gradient feature, you can determine the optimal temperature for primer annealing in a single experiment, minimizing the use of precious samples and reagents and saving valuable research time. At any step in a protocol, you can program a temperature gradient of up to 24°C across the reaction block. The thermal cycler provides exceptional temperature uniformity and reproducibility within each gradient zone, and the temperatures can easily be programmed and viewed onscreen in the software so you can quickly identify the optimal incubation temperature.
Thermal gradient experiment for optimizing annealing temperature. A tenfold dilution series (106 to 10 copies) of plasmid containing GAPDH template was amplified in the presence of SYBR® Green dye using a protocol with an annealing thermal gradient ranging from 55 to 68°C. Results are presented for three temperatures, showing 62°C as the optimal in this case, with early quantification cycle (Cq) values and the highest standard curve efficiency.
