• Group samples and view data both by technical replicate group and biological replicate group
• Use any gene(s) as an endogenous control, including averaging multiple controls together
• Enter known efficiency values to be factored into the RQ results

21 CFR Part 11 Module available
The SDS v1.4 21CFRp11 Module is a powerful tool for assisting with 21CFRp11 compliance, while still offering the flexibility of user-customizable configuration settings.
• Individual user log-ins can be added for up to four user groups, each group with designated permission settings
• User-customizable permission settings include fourteen system activities, e-signature authority designation, and additional security settings to give you maximum control over your compliance efforts
• Audit trails can be enabled or disabled depending on your traceability needs
• A selection of e-signatures is available to ease e-signatures into your workflow

Supports Many Applications
Applications include gene expression analysis, pathogen quantitation, SNP genotyping, isothermal and +⁄– assays utilizing internal positive controls. To facilitate many of these applications, Applied Biosystems® provides preformulated, ready-to-use, quality-tested, TaqMan® assays for use with the 7500 system. Now you can reduce your assay optimization efforts.

Upgrade to High-Speed Thermal Cycling
An optional upgrade to the 7500 Fast System is available. This 7500 Fast System uses our master mix formulations and enables you to shorten your real-time PCR runs to as little as 30 minutes.
