Applied Biosystems StepOnePlus Features:
StepOnePlus Real-Time PCR system comes with the following features.
This PCR system has a wide range of applications, including Gene Expression Analysis, SNP Genotyping, Protein Expression, Micro RNA Expression, Translocation Analysis, and Viral Load Analysis. Its StepOne software also supports several analysis methods like Genotyping and Presence/ Absence, Relative Standard Curve, High-Resolution Melting, etc.
2. Configuration Options:
This system comes with an ultra-compact footprint which can be installed in multiple configurations. It provides exceptional flexibility and convenience to be a comfortable part of any laboratory. Moreover, this system can be used through a PC, with a PC connected to a LAN (Local Area Network) or without a PC too.
3. Space and Energy:
This PCR system saves a lot of space and energy too. Compared to its colleagues, this system draws around 38 percent less energy for processing any sample plate. Moreover, its advanced temperature control feature is space-saving and leaves a smaller environmental footprint.
4. Melting Capability:
It comes in-built with advanced high-resolution melt software that simplifies the machine set-up. It also maintains assay-specific settings and has an improvised clustering algorithm. This algorithm enhances the machine’s accuracy and sensitivity and its ability to conduct separate analyses of different assays running on a single plate.
The Applied Biosystems StepOnePlus presents numerous advantages, some of which are described below.
- Assay Setup:
This PCR system is straightforward and comes with a user-friendly interface. Its intuitive software and protocols are easy to understand. Its quick-start setup guide ensures a rapid and easy assay setup.
- Fluorescence Reading:
This system is incorporated with an LED-based optical system that is capable of recording fluorescence from numerous dyes. It is a 4-color and 96-well system that is pocket-friendly and delivers exceptionally accurate PCR results. Moreover, this system saves the data from every filter without a plate or a computer.
- Gene Expression:
Its highly advanced software comes included with a high-performance Gene Expression Study package. This package improves the accuracy and flexibility of the gene expression assays using different techniques. Some of them are:
- Assay efficiency correction
- Multiple endogenous controls’ usage
- Unlimited plates’ analysis in a single study
- Data sorting using biological and technical replicate groups
These techniques boost the correctness of the results on every usage.
- Real-Time Monitoring:
This system quickly measures the amplification and helps the user monitor each cycle both on the machine and remote basis. It stores all the data through its remote access feature or can transfer the same through an email or USB.
StepOnePlus Systems software contains unique features not available in other real-time PCR instruments. For example, data can be analyzed from multiple perspectives in the Multiple Plots view (See Figure 5). The software constructs four-plot, side-by-side views of all data aspects, including the amplification plot, standard curve, multi-component data plots, and raw data. It also displays this data next to the plate layout for easier analysis.
Another novel feature is the software’s ability to automatically identify wells that might compromise the success of an experiment. During data analysis, the software generates a quality-control report table that fl ags wells based on criteria such as amplification in a negative-control well, the absence of a signal in a well, or a high CT standard deviation in a replicated group.
This feature reduces analysis time and allows researchers new to real-time PCR to be confident in their results. Furthermore, you can customize this feature by disabling or modifying quality flag settings to suit your experimental needs.
