Ahram Biosystems Announces Launch of the New Economy Model F1-12 of Its Palm PCR Series


4/23/2012 10:08:32 AM

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ahram Biosystems, Inc., a leading innovator of new life science tools, today announced the launch of Palm PCR F1-12, the economy model of its innovative portable PCR system. The F1-12 system is a cost-effective, high-performance portable PCR system, delivering PCR amplification with high speed and sensitivity in a fully portable format.

The Palm PCR F1-12 system provides three "Standard Fast" speed levels delivering 30-cycle PCR amplification within 30 minutes down to 24 minutes. The amplification sensitivity reaches to near single-copy level below 10 copies. The dynamic range of the PCR amplification is up to 1 kbp. Like other Palm PCR series, it is battery-powered (more than 4 hours of continuous operation on a single charge) and represents high temperature uniformity (less than +/- 0.1 degrees C) and a small footprint and light weight (71 mm x 121 mm x 47 mm or 2.8" x 4.76" x 1.85", 350 g).

The high speed and high sensitivity of the F1-12 system and its affordable price make it ideal for a wide range of downstream applications that require fast and sensitive nucleic acid amplification. Examples include POCT (point-of-care testing), food quality assurance, forensics, educational uses and many other applications of genetic identification purposes. The battery-powered, full portability makes the F1-12 system particularly invaluable where in-field or on-site PCR amplification is crucial. The Palm PCR F1-12 system enables users to perform highly sensitive and accurate PCR amplification in a fully portable format while saving both money and time.

The Palm PCR F1-12 system comes at an affordable price of mid US$3k, in a complete set that includes the main device, a rechargeable battery and other accessories. The F1-12 system is available for order from Ahram Biosystems (www.ahrambio.com) or its global distributors.
