Quantabio Q a portable, small, versatile qPCR machine using magnetic induction technology. Connect up to 10 instruments, process up to 48 samples per machine
Quantabio Q Instrument offers a faster, smaller, better way to qPCR
- Ultra-Fast Data Acquisition - 35 cycles in 25 minutes
- Unrivalled Performance - Detect 2-fold expression level differences
- Portable & Compact - 4.5 lbs – transport without ever calibrating
- Scalable & Wireless - Connect up to 10 instruments (48 samples/instrument)
- Magnetic Induction Technology - Eliminate variability vs block-based cyclers
Quantabio Q Instrument uses a patented magnetic induction technology to rapidly heat samples coupled with fan-forced air for cooling to acquire data in only 25 minutes. Available as a 4 channel model, the robust optical system acquires all channels simultaneously and allows for running the fastest multiplexed assays.
Q's miniature speaker-size and 4.5 pound weight make it the most portable and versatile qPCR machine on the market without ever needing to calibrate. Q also provides scalability as each qPCR machine can process up to 48 samples per run and up to 10 Q's can be connected to a single computer wirelessly via Bluetooth enabling up to 480 samples to be processed simultaneously.
A key difference is that Q incorporates a unique spinning aluminium rotor providing superior temperature uniformity of ± 0.05°C versus traditional block-based real-time thermal cyclers which rely on multiple Peltier heating blocks that can create edge effects resulting in sample variation. Not only does the data give you superior reproducibility, and repeatability but enables detection of 2-fold gene expression level differences as well as identification of difficult class IV SNP's requiring melt temperature resolutions of 0.1°C.
