quantstudio-5-dx-real-time-pcr-system-270

Effortless, reliable, IVD qPCR system to meet your unique needs

For over 10 years, Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed high-performance, superior, real-time PCR (qPCR) instruments for clinical laboratories all over the world. We have also been committed to developing systems that meet the specific needs of molecular diagnostic and assay developers, with the increased security and compliance of an in vitro diagnostic (IVD) device.

  • Applied Biosystems QuantStudio performance—reliability, sensitivity, and accuracy you expect coupled with an intuitive and simple-to-use interface that allows users of any experience level to operate the system with ease
  • Results you can trust with proven performance—detect differences in target quantity as small as 1.5-fold in singleplex reactions and obtain 10 logarithmic units of linear dynamic range
  • Simple, powerful software—allows users to set up a run, lay out assays, control the instrument, and conduct plate analysis within a single, easy-to-use software interface
  • Quick time to results—interactive diagnostic instrument with short run times  of <30 min
  • Maximize benchtop space—compact instrument
  • Affordable—minimal maintenance and use of existing plastic consumables
  • Enhanced security—auditing and e-signature functionalities that enable you to comply with regulations
  • Peace of mind—IVD test menu allows only authorized IVD tests to be run through IVD mode, helping reduce risk of unauthorized use and accidental or intentional misuse
  • Flexibility you need—diagnose or develop, the choice is yours with software options that guide you through every step of test development* and IVD modes
  • Superior support— support available globally by highly skilled, customer-focused staff

Features that help you comply with requirements of accrediting bodies

Maintenance and calibration reports Records are updated automatically with maintenance and calibration events and can be printed on demand, documenting that the system has been maintained and calibrated to vendor specifications.
Reagent tracking Stores and archives information about reagents used with each test, including lot number and expiration date, with each run. Archived files can be retrieved when required to track samples that were tested with a given set of reagents.
Sample tracking Enables laboratories to more easily track samples associated with a particular plate, set of reagents, run date and time, and data files.
E-signature history Security, auditing, and e-signature software records test events, actions taken, dates, user names, user roles, and activity performed, for documentation and archiving purposes.
Experimental results Report output records details for documentation, archiving, and review-at-a-glance needs, including experiment name, barcode, file name, time stamps (creation, run start, run finish, duration, and modifications), instrument name, serial number, experiment type, results summary, plate layout image, standard curves, results table, and QC summary
