PikoReal Real-Time PCR Systems
The unique heating block design of the Thermo Scientific PikoReal Real-Time PCR Systems maintains temperature uniformity and provides fast heating and cooling for optimal amplification.
The ultra-thin wall Piko PCR plates minimize running costs, plastics waste, and energy consumption. Although these plates are a quarter the size of standard plates, their well volumes and spacing ensures compatibility with multichannel pipettes and liquid handling instrumentation. Finally, PikoReal systems use half the power of typical real-time PCR instruments and consume less reagent, providing a cost-effective and environmentally friendly option for personal bench-top or field use. The combination of the unique heating block and UTW Piko consumables ensures data uniformity for more reliable and repeatable results. The built-in optical system of the PikoReal contains five channels, pre-calibrated for the most common dyes, so users can perform multiplexing with four dyes while dedicating the fifth channel to SYBR Green and HRM experiments. The instruments are controlled by PikoReal software, which enables absolute and relative quantification, melting curve analysis and genotyping. The systems are available in 24- and 96-well formats.
