Bio-Rad Laboratories periodically offers updates for the software and firmware available for amplification instruments. Installing updates ensures optimal performance from your instrument and provides additional features as they become available. We strongly recommend that you regularly check your system and install any available updates.

  • Amplification instruments: Compare the firmware version installed on the instrument to the most current version listed under Download
  • Amplification software: Check the software version installed on your computer against the most current software version listed under Download

To update your firmware or software, download the zipped file which contains update files and instructions.
