Analytik Jena has launched the qTOWER 2.0 real-time PCR system. The platform allows qPCR in a 96-well format, and its high-grade silver sample block guarantees outstanding temperature homogeneity of 0.2 °C over the entire block, Analytik Jena said. This makes the system ideal for any real-time PCR application with up to six fluorescent dyes. qTOWER 2.0 also features a patented fiber optic shuttle system for optimal excitation and detection of a variety of known fluorescent dyes. Finally, the PC-based system contains a wide spectrum of analysis tools including absolute and relative quantification, delta-delta Ct method, PCR efficiency, allelic discrimination, endpoint detection, and protein determination, the company said.
