Bio-Rad QX One Droplet Digital PCR System
Bio-Rad this week launched the QX One Droplet Digital PCR system at the Association for Molecular Pathology meeting. The QX One is a single instrument that automates each step of the droplet digital PCR workflow including droplet generation, amplification, and droplet reading. The instrument has the capacity to run five 96-well plates simultaneously, providing the ability to analyze up to 480 samples per day. The system can detect four colors simultaneously for eight-plex CNV detection, five-plex mutation detection, and four-plex gene expression detection. It is compatible with current ddPCR supermixes, assays, and kits.
