Bio-Rad Laboratories CFX Opus Deepwell qPCR Detection System
Bio-Rad Laboratories has launched the CFX Opus Deepwell Real-Time PCR Detection System. The system has a 96-well block with reaction volumes of up to 125 microliters. The deeper sample wells of the system are designed for sample pooling, certain sample prep procedures, or other specialized protocols such as food and industrial testing, and human and veterinary pathogen detection that require large sample volumes. The system can multiplex up to five targets simultaneously and supports fluorescence resonance energy transfer applications. The Bio-Rad CFX Opus systems deliver uniform thermal cycling, and software that can be linked to Bio-Rad's BR.io platform providing remote setup, instrument monitoring, and cloud data management capabilities.
