Brilliant by Design

Single-well excitation and detection is specific and precise for detecting qPCR signals. No excitation light falls outside of the well, reducing excitation of non-well regions. This reduces signal masking background and eliminates the need to use passive reference dyes, such as ROX.

Multiplex qPCR reactions were scanned for all 6 channels in with a Cielo. Single channel amplification curves were as expected, with no leakage or cross-talk.

More light is required to cover more surface area of the plate thereby dropping the excitation efficiency required for the actual qPCR reaction. To compensate for background, passive reference dyes such as ROX are required.

"Easy, accurate RT PCR machine with great software."


As a lab that has been carrying out high volume PCR testing for the last 12 months, the Azure Cielo Real-Time PCR machine has been a fantastic addition to our suite of equipment to facilitate this process. The comparison data we have achieved… more
