  • A typical thermocycler, which automates the heating and cooling of samples samples held at top.

  • Both PCR reactions were performed on either the Mx3005p thermocycler (Stratagene) or the LC480 thermocycler (Roche).

  • This test was used in both POC laboratories on a two-block SmartCycler system (reaction volume: 25 µl), and in the core laboratory on either an Mx3005p thermocycler (Stratagene) or an LC480 thermocycler (Roche) (reaction volume: 50 µl). rtRT-PCR reactions were performed using the SuperScript III Platinum One-Step qRT-PCR kit

  • Comparative evaluation with the same protocol operated in an MX3005P thermocycler (Stratagene) showed a lower sensitivity for low copy number specimens, but no significant difference in term of specificity (data not shown).

  • The advent of real-time PCR couples a modified thermocycler with real-time kinetics, for a highly accurate method of quantitating the template DNA or RNA.

    GEN News Highlights

  • After DNase I treatment, 1 µg of RNA was used for cDNA synthesis using the TaqMan reverse transcription reagents (Applied Biosystems, Foster City, CA), followed by real-time PCR quantification using SYBR Green and an Applied Biosystems 7300 real-time thermocycler (Applied Biosystems).

  • To amplify a long nDNA fragment, the thermocycler profile included initial denaturation at 94°C for 1 min, 27 cycles for β-globin or 26 cycles for β-polymerase of 94°C 15 sec, 65°C 12 min, with final extension at 72°C for 10 min.
