Life Technologies Announces Flagship PCR Instrument that Enables Cost-Effective, High-Throughput Screening Applications
Date:10/12/2011

point because of the nanoliter volumes required to conduct experiments on the QuantStudio™ 12K Flex OpenArray® plates – saving both reagent costs and precious samples.  Hands-on time to prepare the plates before each experiment is drastically reduced using a new workflow enabled on the fully automated OpenArray® AccuFill™ System, which eliminates manual OpenArray® plate handling and labor-intensive pipetting.

The QuantStudio™ 12K Flex system is also ideally suited for rapid, large-scale pathogen detection applications to quickly screen food samples during public health situations such as the recent Listeria and E. coli outbreaks in the United States and Germany, respectively.  For plant breeders, the ability to reliably link biomarkers to desired traits, such as drought-resistance and high yields, is expected to accelerate crop improvement efforts.

Flexible System

Life Technologies' new flagship PCR instrument eliminates the need to purchase multiple qPCR platforms that take up limited space in the laboratory. The QuantStudio™ 12K Flex system takes an all-in-one approach by accommodating any one of five different interchangeable blocks (OpenArray® plates, TaqMan® Array Card, 384-, 96 fast- and 96-well plates) to match the size and type of experiment.

"The QuantStudio 12K Flex system serves as an ideal complementary platform to next-generation sequencing," said Mark Stevenson, President and COO of Life Technologies. "While sequencing elucidates the unknown in a genome, the QuantStudio efficiently validates that data through broad screening of limited marker sets -- providing a powerful and flexible tool for researchers performing large-scale genotyping or gene expression experiments on a daily basis."
