Agilent Technologies AriaDx Real-Time PCR System

Agilent Technologies has launched the AriaDx Real-Time PCR System in territories recognizing the CE mark for in vitro diagnostics. The modular design of customer-changeable optics in the instrument enables laboratories to use AriaDx with just one optical cartridge, and add more (up to six total) as required. The touchscreen and accompanying analysis software incorporates customer-favored features from the Stratagene Mx series while further increasing and streamlining analysis capabilities, Agilent said. The platform can be used for assays detecting gene expression, allele discrimination, and genotyping, and it is compatible with existing fast chemistry-based assays that are DNA-binding and probe-based.
