Hercules, CA — November 28, 2012 — Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. today announced the launch of its new CFX96 Touch Deep Well real-time PCR detection system, an ideal solution for researchers conducting real-time PCR (qPCR) experiments in large-volume reactions.

Designed and validated for detecting up to five targets in reaction volumes between 10 and 125 µl, the CFX96 Touch Deep Well system offers precise quantification and excellent uniformity with high thermal performance. The redesigned honeycomb thermal block contains six independently controlled thermal electric units, allowing researchers to perform uniform, accurate experiments in large reaction volumes without compromising their quantitative data.

Additional benefits of the CFX96 Touch Deep Well system include:

· Stand-alone operation — view real-time data traces on an intuitive LCD touch screen

· Effortless optimization — optimize assays quickly with built-in thermal gradient

Meaningful data analysis — analyze experiments easily with advanced data grouping tools such as clustergram and heat map in CFX Manager™ software
