QuantStudio 7 Flex Features:
The Quantstudio 7 Flex Real-Time PCR system can accommodate a 96-well or 384-well array card block. By default, these systems come included with one block type. The users can upgrade it with various other block types by purchasing them separately. These machines come included with the following features:
1. Enhanced application versatility:
As mentioned above, these PCR systems have one block type by default. However, their versatile functionality allows the users to accommodate four different block types in total. Operators can purchase these blocks separately and get them fixed to their PCR machines as and when required.
These machines’ phenomenal functionality provides compatibility with more than eight million assays for different functionalities like protein expression experiments or gene regulations, genetic detection, gene expression, etc.
3. Usage and Convenience:
These Real-Time PCR systems are programmed with easy-to-use intuitive software and a responsive touchscreen. Moreover, its convenient block exchange eases the usage further, as it doesn’t require any additional tools.
4. Thermo Fisher Cloud:
Another exciting feature of these machines is the Thermo Fisher Cloud. It provides the operators with a safe place to analyze, store, and share data. The modules within this cloud are web browser-based and account for flexible and easy usage. These tools are compatible with most Macs, PCs, and Applied Biosystems instrument files.
QuantStudio 7 Flex Advantages:
The Quantstudio 7 PCR machines have a lot more useful features that account for the following advantages.
1. Faster and Reliable:
These machines run hundreds of Real-time PCR reactions easily through the 96-well and 384-well microfluid cards. These are also integrable with automation accessories that further maximize the machine’s throughput capability.
2. Accurate Results:
These PCR machines have enhanced instrument-instrument and well-well accuracy. These are possible due to the 6 decoupled emission and excitation filter channels. The 21 filter combinations provide maximum multiplexing and accurate results.
3. Multiple Applications:
The intuitive software in these machines is backed by easy workflows, reliable reagents and assays, and multiple formats. These combine to provide a wider applications’ range and their versatility. Some applications include HRM (High-Resolution Melt), Gene Expression, Genetic Variation, etc. The application versatility is also a result of the 4 blocks accommodation by these machines.
4. Device Ergonomics:
As mentioned above, these machines have high user convenience and flexibility. Moreover, these also come in an ergonomic design avoiding the messy look of the labs. These come in convenient dimensions and weight to easily fit in anywhere and occupy a little space.
These are some of the many advantages of using this machine. Apart from this model, Quantstudio also offers various other models of PCR systems with different features.
