Real Time PCR/Quantitative PCR


A real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) is a laboratory technique of molecular biology based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). It monitors the amplification of a targeted DNA molecule during the PCR. Once the conditions are optimized, a large number of samples can be run at the same time (endogenous control, standard curve, unknown samples, NTC).

There are three Real Time PCR available:

  • 7500 fast real Time PCR system 
  • StepOnePlus
  • Rotor Gene - Corbett Research RG 3000

The 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR System enables you to perform high-speed thermal cycling with run times for quantitative real-time PCR applications.
