Description of the Cepheid SmartCycler Starter System, Desktop
SC1600 Starter System
SmartCycler SC1600 Starter System includes a processing block, software, operators manual, accessory kit, and desktop computer with CDRW drive and flat-panel monitor. Accessory kit includes a mini-centrifuge, tube racks, and a cooling block. Key Features
Sixteen I-CORE (Intelligent Cooling/heating Optical Reaction) modules function as independent thermal cycler/fluorometers.
Each module can be programmed separately, allowing up to 16 different cycling/detection protocols to be performed simultaneously in one processing block.
Up to six processing blocks can be linked to one computer.
Sophisticated optics enable the measurement of fluorescence in four channels in each module at the same time for sensitive detection and precise quantitation.
The use of multiple fluorescent dyes permits the detection of up to four targets in a single sample. Software Features
Threshold settings, protocols, and graph formats can be user-defined.
Each module can be stopped after crossing a user-defined threshold, or transitioned to a melt analysis in order to obtain the concentration or purity of a product.
Two experimental runs can be monitored simultaneously and growth curves from different runs overlayed for easy comparison.
Access to protocols, graphs, and data can be controlled. Specifications:
