CFX96 Deep Well Optical Reaction Module for Real-Time PCR Systems #1844095



96–deep well optical module for real-time PCR, includes cables, for use with C1000 Touch Thermal Cycler Chassis



Use the CFX96 Deep Well Optical Reaction Module for precise, reproducible real-time PCR. The optical module includes an optical system for collection of fluorescent data and a thermal cycler block.

The CFX96 Deep Well Optical Reaction Module is a member of the family of interchangeable reaction modules that can be used with the C1000 Touch Thermal Cycler Chassis for PCR and real-time PCR. All modules can be quickly inserted and removed from the cycler chassis without tools.

Features and Benefits

When the CFX96 Deep Well Optical Reaction Module is combined with the thermal cycler chassis, the system offers:

  • Deep wells for large volumes
  • Detection of up to 5 targets per well, plus a channel dedicated to singleplex FRET
  • Protocol autowriter that generates an optimal protocol for your reaction components
  • Thermal gradient feature that identifies optimal annealing temperature in a single run

The CFX96 Touch™ Deep Well Real-Time PCR Detection System has six independently controlled thermal electric units providing even, precisely controlled temperatures at all times during the run, including ramping. The reduced mass of the honeycomb block provides fast ramping and reduced settling time (time to achieve thermal uniformity).

The optical system, with six filtered LEDs and six filtered photodiodes, collects data from all wells, detecting up to five targets per well. For single-color FAM and SYBR® Green I, the fast scan option reads single-channel fluorescence in all 96 wells in just 3 seconds. A channel with an LED filter–photodiode combination is dedicated to FRET singleplex experiments.

The large touch-screen interface has intuitive graphical programming and displays data traces in real time. The programmable thermal gradient feature can test eight temperatures at once to quickly determine the optimal annealing temperature, and the protocol autowriter quickly optimizes reactions, generating an optimal protocol based on your polymerase, primers, and product length.
