Life Technologies to launch new real-time PCR system

20th April 2010

Life Technologies has introduced a new real-time PCR system which is designed to be more versatile, user-friendly and cost-efficient than previous models.

The new Applied Biosystems ViiA7 Real-Time PCR System will be made available in June 2010 and is designed for research into the relationship between genetics and pharmaceutical treatment.

It features a new system which allows it to detect a single copy of starting genetic material, enhancing its multiplexing flexibility, while its software is optimised for applications such as nucleic acid quantification and copy number variation detection.

The new ViiA7 system is also designed to be easier to operate, featuring one-touch protocols and operability without the need for a separate computer.

Peter Dansky, president of molecular biology systems for Life Technologies, said the unit will “vastly increase the productivity of researchers and inspire them to develop novel workflows that lead to an even greater understanding of the molecular basis of health and disease”.

Earlier this month, it was announced that gene synthesis specialist Geneart is to be acquired by the Life Technologies group via its German subsidiary Applied Biosystems Deutschland.
