Teach real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR) using the same robust, easy-to-use system used by researchers: Bio-Rad’s CFX Opus Real-Time PCR system. Available in 96-well (5-color detection) and 384-well (4-color detection) formats, this next evolution in real-time PCR offers the reliability and performance you expect from Bio-Rad, all packaged in a sleek, modern instrument designed to fit into any classroom laboratory.

Features and Benefits

  • Quick system set up — easy installation and factory-calibrated optics
  • Our best thermal uniformity and accuracy to date
  • Available in 96-well (5-color detection) and high-throughput 384-well (4-color detection) formats
  • Intuitive, easy-to-use interface with a sensitive touch screen — responsive even with double gloves
  • Uniform optical system free of regular calibration requirements

CFX Maestro Software — Real-Time PCR Data Collection, Analysis, and Statistics for Your Desktop

Available for either PC or Mac, this software tool helps you set up your qPCR experiments, select reference genes, perform statistical analyses, and graph your results.

(Note: CFX Maestro software is not included with instrument purchase).

CFX Maestro Software is available both for PC (Windows 7 to 10) and Mac Systems (OS X El Capitan to Sierra). CFX Maestro for Mac offers the data analysis features of CFX Maestro Software but without the instrument control tools.

CFX Opus Cloud Connectivity — BR.io Cloud Platform

The CFX Opus Real-Time PCR System integrates with Bio-Rad's new Br.io Cloud Platform, enabling you to get the most out of your instrument while minimizing time at the bench. BR.io cloud connectivity eliminates the need for a dedicated computer connected to the instrument — access BR.io from any internet connection using a Safari or Chrome web browser (no software installation required).

Use of Br.io does require either an ethernet connection or the Wi-Fi adaptor. Please contact your IT administrator to determine whether this connection is compatible with your classroom laboratory.
