US patent optical calibration qPCR cyclers for CYCLERtestA major breakthrough for molecular diagnostics
The US patent complements similar patents held by CYCLERtest in Europe and Japan.
The traceable Optical Calibration tool and service is a major breakthrough for molecular diagnostics and life sciences. With this advanced technique variables in qPCR are monitored, minimized and become controllable. This gives laboratories a better understanding of the qPCR process and enables them to expand its capabilities. The superior method supersedes the, so far used, non traceable techniques as biological testing, crystal color changes and others.
The innovative technique is based on the traceable calibration of temperature, optical detection and light of (q) PCR cyclers (excitation and emission). A truly unique method since these components are not only detected and generated separately but also in relationship to each other. By doing so, the performance of the real-time thermal cycler is monitored and calibrated like never before.
