The LightCycler 1536 System from Roche Applied Science, which uses a
proprietary 1536-well plate, is capable of performing high-speed, qPCR-based
DNA/RNA analyses in an array-like format.
The instrument is based on the LightCycler 480 Platform architecture. It comes
with a novel thermal cycler module designed for heating and cooling
miniaturized qPCRs in a multiwell plate with 1536 individual reaction wells.
The instrument supports the combination of two excitation filters with two
detection filters, which are optimized for detecting green intercalating
dyes as well as monocolor and dual-color hydrolysis probes. This makes
optical read-out as specific as possible for chemical detection formats,
while reducing the overall complexity of experimental layouts in a
The basic software module of the new system allows users to set up and run
reaction protocols easily.
