qPCR Applications Guide
qPCR Applications Guide

The qPCR Applications Guide is a comprehensive source of information on real-time PCR. Complete with detailed information on optimizing, validating, and analyzing real-time PCR data, this technically focused applications guide is a resource for experienced researchers as well as those wanting to learn more about using real-time PCR for applications such as qPCR, RT-qPCR, genotyping, and GMO detection. This guidebook includes chapters that cover:

  • Key concepts of real-time PCR
  • Getting started — experimental design
  • Multiplexing considerations
  • Data analysis
  • Gene expression analysis
  • Genotyping allelic discrimination
  • GMO detection

This guidebook comes with an easy-to-review real-time PCR quick guide to use at the bench. The quick guide covers the fundamentals of qPCR, design, optimization, and data analysis of qPCR experiments.

The CFX automation system works with the CFX96 Touch™ and CFX384 Touch™ real-time PCR detection systems to enable walk-away, high-throughput operation in a simplified format. The plug-and-go benchtop plate handler has the capacity to stack and load up to 20 PCR plates with the CFX384 Touch system and up to 15 plates with the CFX96 Touch system. This system facilitates the automation of workflows, generation of large volumes of data, and rapid data analysis. The system is ideally suited to meet the high-throughput requirements of today’s drug discovery and screening workflows, letting you process up to 7,680 samples in a single run.

Key Features and Benefits

With the CFX automation system you can:

  • Maximize laboratory throughput — integrate 1 CFX96 Touch or CFX384 Touch real-time PCR detection system for hands-free running of PCR plates
  • Ensure maximum productivity — improve experimental workflow and automation tasks
  • Stay organized — track samples using the integrated bar code reader
  • Quickly set up runs — navigate and execute multiple runs using intuitive CFX automation control software
  • Analyze data when and where you want — receive email notification with an attached data file at the completion of each run and in the event of a run interruption
