Meet the Cielo

Real-time PCR Machine

The Azure Cielo qPCR System is a reliable system packaged with innovative and high-performance optical technology. Three or six standard channels allow you to analyze a variety of commercially available dyes that are already in your workflow.

The Cielo’s novel fiber optic detection system allows for enhanced sensitivity and speed. The Cielo was designed around individual well scanning, comprising of two sets 16 fiber optics. Channel-specific excitation and emission light
emitting diode (LED) light sources ensure that specific wells on the qPCR plate are illuminated, increasing sensitivity and reducing background noise.
