Facility: Materials Synthesis and CharacterizationCategory: Solution Based and Biomolecular Methods Full Catalog

The LightCycler® 480 system enables you to perform real-time, online PCR combined with rapid cycling of up to 96 or 384 samples (depending on the thermal block cycler installed). After monitoring fluorescence during nucleic acid amplification, results can be analyzed, for example, by quantification. The outstanding thermal homogeneity and cycling speed of the LightCycler® 480 System provide exact results in a short time. The LightCycler® 480 system provides various methods for gene detection, gene expression analysis, genetic variation analysis, and pathogen detection.
