The LightCycler® 1536 Instrument is a rapid, plate-based thermal block cycler with integrated real-time, online detection capabilities. The architecture of this high-throughput platform is built upon the proven LightCycler® 480 Instrument, with its high-performance optical unit and block cycler technologies.

  • Utilize the first plate-based real-time PCR instrument that generates 1,536 data points in a single PCR run in less than 50 minutes.
  • Obtain high-performance data comparable to legacy data until now only generated with 96- and 384-formats, using this low-volume 1536-well format (0.5 to 2.0 µl).
  • Reduce sample input volume, and cut your cost per data point by at least 50%.
  • Obtain fourfold higher throughput per plate and reduce inter-assay errors.
  • Maximize PCR layout flexibility using a customizable plate-based format.
  • Obtain reliable real-time PCR data with the LightCycler® 1536 Software, streamlined for high-throughput needs.
  • Take advantage of a streamlined system designed for automation and high-throughput workflows.
  • Improve data robustness with a built-in error-checking system that detects pipetting errors.
