The LightCycler 480 System enables you to perform real-time, online PCR combined
with rapid cycling of up to 384 samples. It comprises of are 96-well and 384-well thermal block cyclers.
The system utilizes a novel block technology to allow the rapid heating and cooling required to complete a 40-cycle, 384-well quantitative PCR run in less than 40 minutes and leads to extraordinary well-to-well temperature homogeneity and maximized inter-well, inter-cycle reproducibility.
After monitoring fluorescence during nucleic acid amplification, results can be analyzed,
for example, by quantification. The outstanding thermal homogeneity and cycling speed
of the LightCycler 480 System provide exact results in a short time.
The optical detection system offers the flexibility to detect a broad range of sequence-dependent
(e.g., HybProbe probes and hydrolysis probes) and sequence-independent probes
(e.g., SYBR Green I).
The streamlined LightCycler 480 Software provides tools to generate high-quality
data. Advanced software tools facilitate intuitive, fast navigation, allowing easy
programming, data capture and analysis.
