Life Technologies Expands Line Of High-Performance QPCR Instruments

Stocks in this article: LIFE

CARLSBAD, Calif., July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --   Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announces further expansion of its qPCR line of instruments with the introduction of two platforms: the QuantStudio™ 7 Flex Real-Time PCR and the QuantStudio™ 6 Flex Real-Time PCR systems. Each provides varying degrees of flexibility designed to match customers' performance and budget needs.

"The launch of these systems provides researchers with much needed application and throughput flexibility with a single instrument," said Chris Linthwaite, President of Genetic Analysis for Life Technologies. "Combined with our recently launched QuantStudio™ 3D Digital PCR System and 510(k)-cleared QuantStudio Dx Real-Time PCR Instrument, this product line now offers flexible solutions across the continuum of basic research to clinical diagnostics."

The QuantStudio™ 7 Flex Real-Time PCR System provides superior flexibility with four interchangeable blocks for experiments requiring either 96-well standard, 96-well fast, 384-well plates or a TaqMan® Array Card (TAC). Throughput is pushed even further with the system's automation capabilities. The new instrument is ideal for maximum multiplexing applications with support for six dyes and 21 filter capabilities.

The QuantStudio™ 6 Flex Real-Time PCR System is the entry-level platform that is competitively priced to enable customers to buy into the product line's high performance and flexibility. It is designed for use with three interchangeable blocks (96-well standard, 96-well fast, or 384-well plates) to fit mid-level throughput needs. As performance requirements increase with larger studies, the instrument can also be upgraded to a QuantStudio™ 7 Flex Real-Time PCR System with the purchase of a kit. 

qPCR has long been the workhorse technology used by researchers around the world to detect and decipher genetic variation underlying biological processes, agricultural diversity and human disease. Over 25,000 publications demonstrate the utility and performance of Applied Biosystems® qPCR instruments in gene expression, genotyping, micro RNA, copy number variation and protein analysis experiments.
