Applications previously “out of reach” due to long test times for qPCR are now possible.
Following Trials with xxpress® the new ultra-high speed qPCR system from BJS Biotechnologies. Stephen Bustin commented in his recent online seminar “PCR Past, Present and Future”.
“We are heading towards faster (systems) and smaller volumes…..with this instrument we’ve been down to 8 second cycles! “
“If you combine this with very small volumes and the use of 96 well plates, we can see how it has very important implications for Molecular Diagnostics, where speed is of the essence.”
Stephen Bustin is Professor of Allied Health and Medicine at Anglia Ruskin University in the U.K. and a recognised PCR expert.
