The Applied Biosystems® QuantStudio™ 3D Digital PCR Instrument is one component of the QuantStudio™ 3D Digital PCR System. The instrument reads and analyzes the QuantStudio™ 3D Digital PCR chips after PCR amplification. Small and lightweight, the instrument reads the QuantStudio™ 3D Digital PCR Chip in minutes and is designed to deliver accurate, sensitive, and precise digital PCR data. The Applied Biosystems® QuantStudio™ 3D Digital PCR System is an affordable digital PCR platform with high accuracy, sensitivity, and precision in a scalable small-footprint platform that is simple to use at any experience level. This version of the instrument includes a power cord.
• Discover a simple, load and go, turn-key, chip-based workflow
• Save money with a system priced over 50% less than the competition
• Quantitate absolute nucleic acid concentrations in copies/µL
Digital PCR makes new applications possible by enabling sensitive and precise absolute target quantification without the use of a reference or standard curve. Researchers can now go beyond Ct to absolute quantification for investigations that involve detecting extremely rare events or counting the exact number of targets in a sample. The simple, affordable, and contained QuantStudio™ 3D Digital PCR System brings digital PCR to all researchers.
The QuantStudio™ 3D Digital PCR System leverages a high-density nanofluidic chip technology to partition a sample into as many as 20,000 independent reaction wells. Samples and amplification products remain completely contained throughout the streamlined workflow, and an easily interpretable answer (target copies/µL) is produced—all of which minimizes the level of expertise required to quantify specific nucleic acid sequences of interest. Simply load the reaction mix onto the chip, amplify on the dual flat block-equipped GeneAmp® PCR System 9700, and read the target concentration on the QuantStudio™ 3D Digital PCR Instrument.
