Techne Prime Pro 48 Real-time qPCR machine

Contact Us

The Prime Pro 48 real time qPCR system is a high specification, economically priced real time thermal cycler that accommodates a unique 48-well polypropylene PCR plate utilising the same geometry as standard 384-well plates, but only 1/8 of the size.This enables users to dramatically reduce the qPCR reagent volumes compared to traditional 96-well instruments, saving users precious sample, whilst still producing a strong fluorescence signal. Minimizing the plate size also significantly improves thermal uniformity. A minimum volume of 5μl is validated, resulting in a more efficient use of expensive and ‘hard to acquire‘ template DNA samples.
