ViiA 7 real-time PCR system
Life Technologies' Applied Biosystems ViiA 7 real-time PCR system is designed for a variety of quantitative PCR (qPCR) and genotyping applications.
The system has been designed to improve researcher productivity for research that includes how gene expression changes in response to pharmacological agents, and how genetic variation influences response to treatments for disease. The system simplifies real-time PCR applications; all integrated and accessible from a touch screen. The system provides the sensitivity to detect a single copy of starting genetic material and offers enhanced multiplexing flexibility. The system's software integrates standard real-time PCR applications like nucleic acid quantification, detection of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), and copy number variation detection with others that include high-resolution melting, protein analysis with proximity ligation technology, and gene expression analysis performed directly from cultured cells without RNA purification. The system includes usability enhancements that enable efficient and cost-effective research. Through one-touch protocols, researchers can operate the system without a separate computer and monitor runs from remote locations. Automated sample loading enables uninterrupted system operation and eliminates the need for robotic pipetting equipment.
