The device is intended to record the results of PCR using sets of reagents, based on the principles of fluorescence detection.

The advantages of the Gene Fluorescence Detector:

  • the possibility to use probes and/or primers with fluorescent markers and quenchers;
  • reduced labor costs and the time it takes to get results;
  • closed-tube format for fluorescence analysis of PCR products (no electrophoretic analysis) minimizes the risk of in-laboratory contamination with PCR products and sets less stringent requirements for PCR laboratory organization;
  • USB interface/power supply;
  • replacement rotor for 0.5/0.2-ml microtubes;
  • the efficacy of the device makes it possible to organize routine laboratory tests on a large scale;
  • the software for effective results processing, documentation and reporting;
  • compact design.

The instrument focuses on the use of probes and / or primers labeled with a fluorescent label and quencher of fluorescence.
