Sofware comes free of charge and implements the real time PCR data markup language, or RDML file format witch become very popular on global level as a universal file format for real time pcr data. A fact proved by a long list of supporters of this standardization.

The new platform is dedicated to both high-end research customers and more casual users (instructors in teaching laboratories for students) in the mid-price segment of the market (around 30,000 US $). The 96 well block format represents more than 50% of the market, and is dedicated for users that demand more automation.

Key features

Silver Block The silver block designed to ensure a high degree of temperature homogeneity and uniformity thus improving data consistency and accuracy ( +/- 0.2° Celsius from the target temperature).
