Ghent University Will Use Roche's LightCycler® 1536 Instrument in the Field of HT PCR for Cancer ResearchPenzberg, )
"We are quite enthusiastic and foresee many exciting studies and possible applications of the LightCycler® 1536 Instrument in our work," said Jo Vandesompele, Professor of functional cancer genomics and applied bioinformatics at Ghent University and cofounder and CEO at Biogazelle, a realtime PCR dataanalysis and service company.
"We are glad that our system will be an essential part of the cutting edge cancer research at Ghent University.", stated Manfred Baier, Head of Roche Applied Science. "We expect a boost of new findings, also on the use of the LightCycler® Instrument and our Genome Sequencer FLX System in an integrated workflow."
The LightCycler® 1536 Instrument is based on the wellestablished LightCycler® 480 Platform architecture. It supports the combination of two excitation filters with two detection filters, which are optimized for detecting green intercalating dyes as well as monocolor and dualcolor hydrolysis probes. This makes optical readout as specific as possible for chemical detection formats, while reducing the overall complexity of experimental layouts in a highthroughput scenario. The systems software is particularly suited to enhancing compatibility for automated highthroughput data analysis workflows.
The LightCycler® 1536 Multiwell Plate is the first highdensity PCR plate for realtime PCR applications. By using Thermaxis® technology, this unique multiwell plate enables unsurpassed thermal performance in miniaturized reaction volumes of only 0.5 - 2 µL. The plate consists of two components: a thermally conductive unit containing welllike structures for the reaction liquid and an insulating top layer that prevents the heated lid of the instrument from affecting the analysis.
