Technology Highlights for automated real-time PCR

  • Secure data through 21 CFR part 11 software module

  • Proven technology for fast qPCR assays and excellent performance

  • Comprehensive flexibility allows adaptations even for special applications

Secure data guaranteed

The optionally available 21 CFR Part 11 software module was specially designed for use in regulated environments. It supports you ideally in monitoring your real-time PCR processes and ensures the traceability of your data. The module has numerous functionalities, including electronic signatures, a traceable audit trail for your quality assurance and time and date stamps.

  • Maximum protection for your data
  • Extended user management with three authorization levels
  • Electronic signature
  • Audit trails

Harnessing optimized block technology

Powered by the proven Biometra block technology, the qTOWER³ auto sets new standards in terms of speed and homogeneity for automated real-time PCR.  High-quality block materials and advanced Peltier technology ensure maximum thermal conductivity to enable rapid heating and cooling for shorter runtimes. This not only speeds up qPCR analysis, but provides superior accuracy and highest well-to-well reproducibility, while eliminating the cost of repeated qPCR runs and the loss of reagents and samples due to inaccurate temperatures.

  • Exceptional heating and cooling rates
  • Efficient, uniform temperature distribution
  • Outstanding and high-quality data accuracy
  • Variable reaction volumes

Maximum reliability through proven optical system

Excellent data quality of fluorescent measurements is achieved through the patented fiber optic detection system. It enables homogeneous illumination and readout of each individual well which results in reduced sample to sample variations for exact, meaningful results. Powered by a long-lasting LED light source, equipped with a sensitive Photo-multiplier tube detector and a finely tuned set of excitation and emission filters, it provides optimized excitation for each individual sample while detecting the emitted fluorescent signals with extraordinary homogeneity. The ability to change or retrofit color modules increases the flexibility in the choice of fluorescent dyes that can be used to perfectly meet your current and future requirements for multiplex applications.

  • Enhanced multi-target detection capabilities
  • Retrofitting of filter modules
  • Calibration free optical unit
  • Broad dynamic range
