The PCRmax Eco™ 48 real time PCR 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, whilst still producing a strong fluorescence signal. Minimizing the plate size also significantly improves thermal uniformity. A minimum volume of 5µl is validated, cutting reagent costs in half and making more efficient use of expensive and hard to acquire template DNA samples.

     • MIQE compliant.
     • HRM functionality is provided as standard and can discriminate class IV SNP 99.9% of the time.
     • The Eco™ 48 can utilise four colours for easy multiplexing.
     • Industry leading ±0.1ºC temperature uniformity.
     • Suitable for both single labs and core facilities. High uniformity provides high quality data. Fast cycling enables several experiments per hour.
     • Fastest block-based real-time PCR system. 40 cycles in 40 minutes (standard chemistry) and 40 cycles in 20 minutes (fast chemistry).
     • The PCRmax Eco™ 48 is an open platform that can utilise any chemistry, dye or PCR reagent.
     • Calibrated for SYBR®, FAM™, HEX™, VIC™, ROX™ and Cy®5 fluorescent dyes.
     • Standard and Fast cycling protocols.
     • Easy to use software, streamlined for novices and experts.
     • Industry-leading data quality.
     • Array of 48 LED optics.
     • The Eco™ 48 format provides a small 34.5cm x 31cm (13.6" × 12.2") footprint that fits anywhere.
