The iQ5 real-time PCR detection system offers a fresh design for Bio-Rad’s new generation of real-time PCR instrumentation. Like its predecessors, the iCycler iQ and MyiQ systems, the iQ5 optical system is a modular upgrade to the iCycler thermal cycler with 96-well reaction block. This powerful new system offers five-target analysis capabilities for multiplex PCR, coupled with a completely redesigned software package. The iQ5 optical system software offers a full suite of enhanced data collection and data analysis options, including tools for gene expression analysis that measure relative quantities without a standard curve. Regardless of your PCR application, you will find that the iQ5 real-time PCR detection system is the ultimate system for value and flexibility. Key Features –Multiplexing of up to 5 fluorophores in each reaction vessel conserves precious samples and reagents –Real-time PCR thermal gradient enables simple, rapid assay optimization –Intuitive software for protocol setup and data analysis shortens time to results –Diverse data analysis and presentation options provide a comprehensive view of your assay result –Flexible allelic discrimination module allows easy-to-use, automatic sample identification in genotyping experiments –Embedded tools for end-point fluorescence analysis enables simple qualitative analysis of sample abundance in single- or multicolor assays –Robust, reliable thermal cycling performance delivered by the iCycler thermal cycler Fully Re-furbished, calibration / alignment to factory standard. 90 day warranty.
