Total control
With built-in software features to support compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines, user account management, locked workflow and Pause features, the QuantStudio® 5 system offers users greater control of experiment data

Multiplex performance results that you can trust
Improved well-to-well and instrument-to-instrument data accuracy is achieved with OptiFlex® technology. In the 96-well system this technology features 6 decoupled excitation and emission filter channels, for a total of 21 filter combinations, with white LED.

Sensitive data analysis
Detect changes in target quantity as small as 1.5-fold in single-plex reactions and obtain 10 logs of linear dynamic range.

High application versatility
Simple and optimized protocols, reliable assays and reagents, and intuitive software are available for a broad range of applications, including gene expression, genetic variation, gene regulation, and more.

7900HT Fast Real-Time PCR System with 384-Well Block Module and Automation Accessory (Applied Biosystems™)

The 7900HT Fast Real-Time PCR System is a real-time quantitative PCR system that combines 96- and 384-well plate compatibility and the TaqMan® Low Density Array with fully automated robotic loading-and now also offers optional Fast real-time PCR capability. The optional, integrated Automation Accessory provides maximum throughput. Up to eighty-four 384-well plates can be loaded at a single time for unattended operation; a bar code reader allows you to insert or substitute plates into the sample queue at any time.

• Fast PCR option reduces run time to about 35 minutes in a standard 96-well format, or about 55 minutes in a 384-well plate
• Continuous wavelength detection from 500-660 nm allows the use of multiple fluorophores in a single reaction
• Measure gene expression levels, detect and quantitate pathogens, perform allelic discrimination (SNP genotyping) assays as well as score the presence of gene sequences
• 96- or 384-well plate compatibility (including the TaqMan® Low Density Array)
• Optional Enterprise edition software provides data analysis tools that support 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines providing data integrity and security
• Hands-free plate-loading and unloading provides true walkaway automation allowing you to increase your lab's productivity
• Proven assay development guidelines save time and money

High Throughput
The 7900HT System is a high-throughput real-time PCR system that detects and quantitates nucleic acid sequences. An optional Automation Accessory combined with 384-well plate capability make the 7900HT system ideally suited to meet the high-throughput requirements of today's drug discovery process. Key applications include gene expression quantitation and the detection of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) using the fluorogenic 5' nuclease assay.

Flexibility
The 7900HT system is a versatile research tool that can accommodate any real-time PCR need. User-interchangeable thermal cycling block formats let you select the format that’s right for your project, using industry-standard 96- and 384-well formats, as well as a novel 384-well TaqMan® Low Density Array and a new Fast 96-well block that reduces run times from 2 hours to about 30 minutes. An easy automation upgrade path lets you add features to meet throughput demands. A Fast PCR option reduces run times from 2 hours to about 30 minutes.

Powerful Software
Using two automation software tools, Plate Utility and Automation Controller, most of the gene expression and SNP genotyping workflow is fully automated for high-throughput applications and requires minimal user intervention. You can now process 5,000 x 384 well plates (384 markers), which equates to 1.92 million genotypes. Using Relative Quantification (RQ) Manager, you can also process 200 x 384-well plates (96 detectors with quadruplicate data points⁄multiplexed endogenous control), which equates to 153,600 data points. Fully integrated into one complete Enterprise system, SNP Manager and RQ Manager eliminate data analysis bottlenecks in high-throughput SNP and gene expression research by allowing significantly more plates to be analyzed simultaneously. This reduces hands-on analysis time and simplifies the data analysis workflow.

QuantStudio™ Pro Block Upgrade Kit, 384-well (Applied Biosystems™)

The QuantStudio Pro Block Upgrade Kit is an optional accessory for the QuantStudio Pro Real-Time qPCR System. Interchangeable blocks enable application versatility with easy, powered-up interchange of block types.

The QuantStudio 7 Pro system accommodates the interchange of 96-well (0.2 mL), 96-well (0.1 mL), 384-well, and TaqMan array card (TAC) blocks. The system is delivered with one block type; other block types may be purchased separately. For a more value-priced system that does not support TaqMan array cards or automation (but that can be upgraded to do so at a later date), please see our QuantStudio 6 Pro Real-Time PCR System. And for the ultimate in flexibility, consider the QuantStudio 12K Flex Real-Time PCR System, which also accommodates TaqMan OpenArray plates.

StepOnePlus™ Real-Time PCR System Upgrade (Applied Biosystems™)

This kit upgrades a 48-well StepOne™ Real-Time PCR System to a 96-well system.
