Mic uses a patented magnetic induction technology to heat your samples and fan forced air for cooling. This means fast qPCR results through rapid heating and cooling with 35 cycles possible in under 25 minutes.
The Mic real-time cycler is available in either 2 or 4 channel models. Each channel uses an independent high intensity LED, photodetector and filter set combining together to give unparalleled detection performance.
With a fixed optical path and no moving parts there is never any optical alignment or calibration required. Even better is that no reference dyes or crosstalk compensation is required.
Combine an excellent temperature accuracy of ± 0.25ºC, a first class well-to-well temperature uniformity of ± 0.05ºC, and superior equilibration time uniformity (zero seconds for all wells to reach the same temperature) and you can easily classify difficult class IV SNPs that require melt temperature resolutions of less than 0.1ºC.
Only magnetic induction technology by way of its elegant simplicity makes it possible to achieve such a small qPCR instrument footprint. The Mic qPCR tube format uses 0.1 mL strips of four tubes and matching caps, supporting volumes of 10 to 25 µL.
Multiple Mics can be operated from one workstation so 48 becomes 96, and 96 becomes 192. Bluetooth technology means fewer cables too. Instruments can communicate via Bluetooth or USB cable and you can connect as many as ten instruments to one PC. This means up to 480 samples can be analysed simultaneously.
