Bio-Rad Laboratories CFX Duet Real-Time PCR System
Bio-Rad Laboratories has launched the CFX Duet Real-Time PCR system to support researchers developing singleplex and duplex qPCR assays.
The CFX Duet is a two-color system that is factory calibrated for common dyes. It allows the quantification of up to two targets in genotyping and multiple gene expression analyses without the need for passive reference dyes. It also offers the thermal cycling performance and optical shuttle system of the CFX Opus System, with thermal gradient functionality to enable optimization in fewer runs. A fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) mode also supports protein melt analysis for basic protein characterization.
The CFX Duet utilizes CFX Maestro software for experimental setup and analysis as well as to deliver reports, obviating the need for exporting data to other programs, Bio-Rad said.
