PRINCETON, N.J., July 25, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Introducing the new Mini 16™ ultra-fast portable qPCR machine from Four E's USA. A miniaturized real time PCR device with 16 sample wells.
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a revolutionary laboratory method that takes advantage of the natural DNA replication process to amplify copies of a specific DNA segment using short synthetic DNA fragments called primers. Primers select a segment of the genome to be amplified, and then multiple rounds of DNA synthesis are performed to amplify that segment, providing billions of copies of the target sequence to allow for enhanced detection. While traditional PCR methods require gel electrophoresis and sequencing to obtain a measurement, quantitative PCR (qPCR), turns the PCR process into a measurement technique in itself with the addition of fluorescent dye and a fluorometer to detect fluorescence. The information obtained from real-time fluorescent readings can be used to determine relative and absolute amounts of that target DNA present. Because of the real-time measurements, qPCR is often called real-time PCR.
"The Mini 16™ has a compact 16-well design that is compatible with standard transparent 0.2mL PCR reaction tubes, providing superior portability without compromising performance." - Brian Canna | Four E's USA
In the current era of rapid testing, the portability of the Mini 16™ can easily meet the needs of on-site rapid detection without the large benchtop footprint of traditional qPCR machines. The Mini 16™ has a compact 16-well design that is compatible with standard transparent 0.2mL PCR reaction tubes, providing superior portability without compromising performance. The Mini 16™ sports an ultra-fast temperature ramp rate of 8°C per second that cuts down on heating time between cycles, increasing sample processing and cycling efficiency. Liquid circulation refrigeration and tightly-controlled ±0.2°C temperature variability between wells ensure uniform thermal cycling for each sample and accurate temperature control, so you can trust that your PCR program was faithfully carried out.
The Mini 16™ is on the cutting edge of molecular biology technology, making it perfect for epidemic prevention and control, rapid screening for entry and exit, food safety testing, environmental microorganism identification, budget-conscious assay development laboratories, veterinary diagnostics, and so much more. The speed, portability, and easy-to-use software of the Mini 16™ also make it perfect for scientific research and teaching new users.
Aside from disease or pathogen detection, the Mini 16™ can also be used for genotyping or measuring absolute or relative DNA concentration. Please contact Four E's USA for additional information.
