7500

The 7500 Real-Time PCR System is a powerful platform for labs requiring superior performance and maximum dye versatility. This system is a sophisticated platform for users who require extended capabilities and maximum versatility. The 3rd generation platform features an innovative optical system that enhances sensitivity and lets you access a broader range of fluorophores. The variable excitation capability allows greater sensitivity for longer wavelength (red) dyes.

• Powerful, five-color platform is calibrated for the broadest range of dyes available: FAM™⁄SYBR® Green I, VIC®⁄JOE™, NED™⁄ TAMRA™⁄ Cy3™, ROX™⁄Texas Red®, and Cy5™ dyes
• Specialized optical system enables easy and accurate calibration to new dyes without requiring the addition of new filter sets
• Advanced multi-componenting algorithm minimizes spectral crosstalk – superior for multiplexing
• User-friendly software includes plate set-up wizards, multi-plate data viewing capabilities, and advanced analysis tools

Supports Many Applications
Applications include gene expression analysis, pathogen quantitation, SNP genotyping, isothermal and +⁄– assays utilizing internal positive controls. To facilitate many of these applications, Applied Biosystems® provides preformulated, ready-to-use, quality-tested, TaqMan® assays for use with the 7500 system. Now you can reduce your assay optimization efforts.
