TheApplied Biosystems 7500 Fast Dx Real-Time PCR Instrument with SDS Software is a real-time nucleic acid amplification and five-color fluorescence detection system available for in vitro diagnostic use.
The 7500 Fast Dx Real-Time PCR Instrument delivers the performance required for high-quality results in a 96-well format.
• 96-well format eases plate setup if automation is not available
• Accommodates tube strips, which can be capped immediately after pipetting each sample
• Fast mode completes runs in less than forty minutes
• Optional standard mode facilitates use of standard length real-time PCR assays without changing thermal cycling parameters
• 5-color variable excitation enables multiplex assays
Convenient 96-well Format
The 7500 Fast Dx Real-Time PCR Instrument minimizes the effort required to perform sample setup while also allowing the use of tube strips.
Intuitive Software to Run Pre-optimized Protocols
The Applied Biosystems 7500 Fast Dx Real-Time PCR Instrument Sequence Detection Software Security, Auditing, and E-Signature module offers the flexibility to develop assays and also run pre-optimized protocols for users operating in a secure environment.
