Rotor-Gene Q


Real-time PCR cycler, the Rotor-Gene Q, combines multiple optimized design features to provide the outstanding performance and reliable results that your research demands. The Rotor-Gene Q supports multiple PCR tube formats to suit a range of needs. Changing the format, by simply switching the snap-fit metal rotor that holds the tubes, takes just seconds. As well as tubes, Rotor-Discs are available, which offer accelerated setup and higher throughput. Rotor-Discs are circular plates of vertically oriented reaction wells. The Rotor-Disc 100 is the equivalent of a 96-well plate with an additional 4 reference wells. These extra wells can be conveniently used for more reactions or additional controls. Alternatively, the Rotor-Disc 72 has 72 wells. Rotor-Discs can be quickly and easily sealed with plastic film using a Rotor-Disc Heat Sealer.
