Roche Applied Science LightCycler 2.0 System
The LightCycler® 2.0 Instrument allows you to monitor amplification of a PCR product simultaneously, in real-time and online, with six different detection channels. The LightCycler® Software collects fluorescence data from all six channels at each cycle and displays it immediately. This enables you to terminate PCR runs early if signal levels are adequate, or prolong them when signals are too low. The amplification reaction occurs in specially designed glass capillaries. Their superior surface-to-volume ratio guarantees extremely rapid thermal transfer, which facilitates high-speed thermal cycling. The combination of glass capillaries and the air-driven temperature control of the LightCycler® 2.0 Instrument ensures rapid PCR. An entire 35-cycle run can be performed in as little as 30 minutes (with 20 µl capillaries) to 60 minutes (with 100 µl capillaries).
Roche Applied Science LightCycler Technology set the standard for rapid, sensitive and accurate real-time PCR: Combined with Melting-curve Technology, the new LightCycler 2.0 System offers: Extremely fast online quantification of PCR products as well as product identification and genotyping.
Analysis results of gene expression studies is substantially improved with our new relative quantification software and solutions for muliplex PCR, leading to novel approaches in assay design.
We offer a 2004 LightCycler 2.0 System used for standard RT PCR. Is fully functional and in excellent condition as it was sparingly used and solely by one technician whose task was to serve as RTPCR technician. Is currently operational. Was under service contract until 2005, after that there was no need for one as the technician was very experienced and ran this machine.
