The CFX96 Touch System is a real-time PCR detection system that combines optical technology with temperature control. This six-channel (five colors and one FRET channel) real-time PCR instrument combines advanced optical technology with precise temperature control to deliver sensitive, reliable detection for singlexplex or multiplex reactions. Quickly set up runs and monitor amplification traces in real time on the integrated LCD touch screen, or use the included CFX Maestro Software to easily and intuitively design your experiment and analyze results from a connected computer. With up to five-target detection, thermal cycler performance, unrivaled stand-alone functionality, and easy-to-use software, the CFX96 Touch System is designed to advance your qPCR. [Product Link]
Access focused applications such as targeted resequencing, metagenomics, small genome sequencing, targeted gene expression profiling, and more. MiSeq reagents enable up to 15 Gb of output with 25 million sequencing reads and 2 Ã— 300 bp read lengths. [Product Link]
Leica RM2255 rotary microtome is designed for fully motorized sectioning of both paraffin- and the Leica RM2255 in routine and in histology. Its two-in-one design concept, which allows motorized and manual sectioning, provides reproducible high-quality sections. [Product Link]
Next generation imaging system designed for high resolution, confocal observation of both fixed and living cells.FV1000 offers advances in confocal system performance while providing the speed and sensitivity required for live cell imaging with minimal risk of damage to living specimens.In addition, the FV1000 offers a revolutionary synchronized laser scanning system called the SIM Scanner. While one laser stimulates, the second laser simultaneously provides high-resolution imaging. This coordination of laser stimulation and imaging makes the FV1000 an ideal choice for FRAP, FLIP and photoactivation. [Product Link]
Legend RT is a general-purpose tabletop centrifuge for biotechnological and pharmaceutic research. .The user-friendly "QUIKset" control panel permits easy selection of speed, RCF value, run time and deceleration profile, as well as temperature of the Legend RT. You can switch from speed to RCF display and vice versa, with a touch of a button and even during a run [Product Link]
