The LightCycler® 480 Instrument is a rapid, thermal block cycler with integrated real-time, online detection capabilities.

The BioMark™ System produces high quality data from RNA, miRNA, and DNA. Will perform real-time PCR analysis on up to 96 unique samples and 96 genes.

  Roche LC480 Fluidigm Biomark
Format 96 or 384 well plates 12 samples x12 genes; 48 samples x 48 genes (Real-Time or SNP genotyping); 96 samples x 96 genes
Applications Taqman, Sybr Green, HRM, Genotyping Taqman, Sybr Green, Genotyping, Digital PCR
Advantages Flexible format High throughput; uses very low quantities
Disadvantages Expensive for high throughput experiments Fixed formats; samples must be pre-amplified.
Sample Preparation Suggestions Eppendorf epMotion robot available for 384 well plates; samples should be in triplicate. Pre-qualified assays recommended, reference gene should be determined empirically More than 1 technical replicate for each sample recommended.
