  Working Principles
Click to ViewProgress of DNA amplification during a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) can be monitored in "real time" (RT-PCR) by measuring the release of fluorescent "flashes" during amplification. Reaction rates can be measured continuously, or determined at a fixed time-point during the exponential amplification phase. It aids the Melt-curve genotyping with HybProbe- or SimpleProbe probes and Endpoint genotyping with hydrolysis probes.

  User Instructions
Gene quantification --> Absolute quantification --> Relative quantification • Genetic variation analysis/Genotyping (Genotyping based on endpoint analysis/melting curve analysis; Mutation scanning & SNP analysis through High resolution melting (HRM) analysis) • Gene expression analysis User has to enter data “only” into blue colored boxes. • Use the plate configuration box to determine sample number, row A1-12 is used for duplicate samples of standards and a no template control (NTC). • Unknowns should either be run as duplicates or triplicates. • After dispensing the reaction volume, seal plate with optical adhesive cover using manufacturer’s instructions. • Briefly spin down plate at 1,000 rpm and now plate is ready to run. • At end of run, analyze PCR products by electrophoresis to confirm the absence of non-specific products.
