Introducing the Prime Pro 48

Techne groot

The Prime Pro 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 reduce qPCR reagent to only 5μl compared to traditional 96-well instruments, whilst still producing a strong fluorescence signal. Minimizing the plate size also significantly improves thermal uniformity. PrimePro 48 cuts reagent costs in half and makes more efficient use of template DNA.

The Pro 48 workflow is based on three simple steps:
• Load samples into the 48-well plate using the backlit CubedDock and place the plate into the Pro 48.
• Run experiment.
• The Pro 48 software provides instrument control, data collection, and data analysis. The most common qPCR parameters are automatically in place. These can be easily changed on the computer to meet specific experimental requirements.
