Automation of Real time PCR

Automation of Real time PCR

Real time PCR is a powerful technique that allows researchers to examine DNA to a new degree of precision. Researchers generally require precise, accurate aspiration and dispensing of small volume samples. Manual pipetting is laborious and error-prone.

Laboratories considering high throughput real time PCR will maximize efficiency with automated solution such as Aurora’s VERSA 110 PCR Setup workstation. Precision aspirating and dispensing offered by this system enables small-volume samples to be reliably run simultaneously in triplicate or duplicate.

As with any PCR technique, contamination in the form of DNase or foreign nucleic acids is a primary concern for real time PCR. The VERSA 110 PCR Setup system is compatible with disposable, filtered tips to minimize aerosolized contamination. The optional HEPA filtered / UV / fluorescent light enclosure allows users to walk away from sensitive samples, secure in the knowledge that the integrity of their samples is protected.
