MJ Research DNA Engine Opticon 2

The Opticon 2™ system has the same standard features as the original Opticon system, with the added capability of two-color detection.   Samples are illuminated by a fixed array of 96 blue-green LEDs and detected by two PMTs. The first PMT detects wavelengths between 523-543nm (suitable for detecting SYBR® Green I and FAM™ – labeled probes), while the second PMT Detects wavelengths from 540 – 700nm (suitable for detecting a number of popular fluorophores, including HEX™ -, TET™ -, TAMRA™ -, and VIC™ – labeled probes).

Description

The Opticon™ 2 system has the same standard features as the original Opticon system, with the added capability of two-color detection. Samples are illuminated by a fixed array of 96 blue-green LEDs and detected by two PMTs. The first PMT detects wavelengths between 523-543nm (suitable for detecting SYBR-Green-I-and FAM-labeled probes), while the second PMT detects wavelengths from 540-700nm (suitable for detecting a number of popular fluorophores, including HEX™-, TET™-, TAMRA™-, and VIC®-labeled probes).

Features:

  • Multicolor capability allows detection of SYBR Green I or FAM in the first channel, and a range of fluorophores in the second channel — including TET, HEX, VIC, and TAMRA — for a multitude of applications such as RT-qPCR* and allelic discrimination.
  • DNA Engine® thermal cycler offers precise thermal control, and a temperature gradientfeature permits simultaneous incubation at 12 different temperatures, to optimize reactions in a single run.
  • Real-time results allow plotting of signal intensity vs. cycle number and graphically monitoring the thermal profile during the run.
  • Extraordinary sensitivity permits reliable detection of one initial template copy, while delivering a linear range of up to ten orders of magnitude in starting copy number (with appropriate chemistry).
  • Researcher-oriented software allows quantification of samples and generation of melting curves to verify product identity.
  • Innovative optical system incorporates an array of 96 LEDs for excitation and a pair of sensitive PMTs for detection in a robust, no-moving-part design.
  • High sample capacity accommodates up to 96 samples in standard, low-profile microplates or strip tubes, making specialized disposables unnecessary.
  • A compact footprint (34cm wide x 47cm deep x 60cm high) ensures that the Opticon 2 system comfortably fits on any lab bench.
