Other dyes/probes are possible depending on the system configuration.
The Cielo’s efficient well-based scanning technology scans multiple data points within each well, eliminating the need for normalization dyes such as ROX.
Amplification curves generated using human genomic DNA template along with human GAPDH primers and a no ROX SYBR Green qPCR mix.
Competitive systems only acquire 1 pixel/well compared to the Cielo’s ability to capture approximately 100,000 pixels/wells, enabling accurate, reproducible and sensitive representation of fluorescent intensities from each qPCR well.
High-quality engineering includes Peltier-based thermal block system designed for superior thermal cycling and unmatched optical design to ensure every run is accurate and reproducible.
Unparalleled uniformity. Amplification curves for 96 replicates shown on a linear plot
