BEVERLY, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quantabio, a leading provider of robust reagents for the most demanding molecular testing and life science research
applications, today announced the launch of its compact Q cycler. The Q is the industry’s smallest, fastest, best performing, and most affordable cycler, making
it ideal for all molecular testing applications.
The Q complements Quantabio’s industry-leading ToughMix and PerfeCTa reagents, enabling customers to generate high-quality data and overcome common
PCR inhibitors in basic and translational research, as well as applied testing applications. The plug and play instrument features a unique magnetic induction
technology and spinning rotor that ensure temperature accuracy and well-to-well uniformity, eliminating any variability caused by edge effects associated with
block-based cyclers. Available in two or four channel models, the robust optical system acquires all channels simultaneously, resulting in the fastest
multiplexed assays.
Key advantages include:
Ultra-fast data acquisition – Complete 35 cycles in as little as 25 minutes
Unrivaled performance – Detect two-fold expression level and single-digit copy number differences
Reproducibility – Ensure data performance is similar across multiple samples, runs and instruments
Portability – Transport speaker-sized, 4.5 lb. instrument easily without ever calibrating
Scalability and wireless connectivity – Connect up to 10 instruments via Bluetooth and process up to 480
samples in a single data set
“Quantabio is committed to providing our customers with the reagents and instrumentation they need to maximize data quality, improve turnaround times and
overcome common challenges associated with the most demanding PCR and NGS molecular testing workflows,” said Heather Meehan Ph.D., Vice President
of Commercial Operations at Quantabio. “The Q is the smallest, fastest, best performing, and most affordable cycler on the market. The combination of
performance and portability not only makes it perfect inside traditional academic research labs but also outside for all of the field-based food, plant and
environmental testing applications around the world.”
