Open qPCR – from CHAI Bio, USA

The Open qPCR is a portable, real-time PCR instrument for amplifying and detecting DNA and RNA targets of interest.

Based on a photodiode detection and dual-Peltier thermal system, the instrument contains 16 wells and supports sample volumes between 10 – 50 µL per reaction. With a maximum ramp rate of 5 °C/s, the system’s heating and cooling efficacy results in rapid cycling and leads to assay completion in as little as 20 minutes.

Chai offers two models of the Open qPCR system: single channel and dual channel.
