    The Rotor-GeneQ instrument (SN: R121240)

    with its Software (Version is designed to

    perform real-time and end-point thermal cycling

    using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and

    high-resolution melting analysis (HRM) in

    molecular biology applications.

    36-Well Rotor and 72-Well Rotor are available.

    with the instrument. 36-Well Rotor Locking Ring

    enables the use of 0.2 ml tubes. The 72-Well

    Rotor and Locking Ring are used with Strip Tubes

    and Caps, 0.1 ml, which can be used for volumes

    as low as 20 l. The caps provide a safe and

    reliable seal.

    Applications: It is highly suited to precisely

    quantitate and analyze changes in gene

    expression, genotyping, pathogen detection,

    concentration measurement, protein analysis,

    enzyme kinetics, and many other areas of

    research. The powerful and user-friendly software

    provides simplicity for beginners as well as an

    open experimental platform for advanced users. The 36-Well Rotor. The 72-Well Rotor.

    Applications for all thermal cyclers availabe (PX2, Q-Cycler, BIORAD)

    PCR is widely used as a diagnostic and research tool. Its applications are widespread over many disciplines,

    including molecular biology, microbiology, genetics, clinical diagnostics, forensic science, environmental science,

    hereditary studies and paternity testing.

    Copying and amplifying fragments of nucleic acids (DNA).

    Analyzing clinical specimens for the presence of infectious agents, e.g. HIV, hepatitis, human papillomavirus

    and others.

    In forensic science, using PCR-based DNA fingerprinting, fragments of DNA can be isolated from a crime scene

    and compared to a database of DNA of convicts or criminals.

    DNA fingerprinting is also used in paternity testing.

    Analysis of genetic mutations that occurs in cancer and many genetic diseases.

    Assisting the DNA sequencing technique where segments of DNA from an area of interest can be easily

    amplified to study their sequences.
