BioRad - CFX qPCR thermalcycler

(Located in Saab/ETIC 308)

(Do not reserve separately for NGS)

The CFX Connect system can be used for running and analyzing large gene expression studies. The system’s unsurpassed thermal performance plus its innovative optical design produce accurate, reliable data, and powerful, yet intuitive software accelerates every step of your real time PCR research. The optimal result could be collected using minimized amount of reagents and sample in very short period of time.

CFX system can determine the concentration of generated DNA sample libraries prior to running them on the Experion 1K DNA chip assay and sequencing on the NextSeq 500. A qPCR validation/quantification will be required prior to sequencing for the accurate quantification of good quality libraries.

The system is optimized for Bio-Rad factory calibrated dyes, but can incorporate reagents from different manufacturers. The CFX manager software allows for quick setup and analysis.
