The Modaplex System




An Automated, High Multiplex Real-Time PCR Instrument

The Modaplex System is an automated, high throughput and high multiplex real-time PCR and capillary electrophoresis instrument. The system is capable of running up to 48 samples and reporting on up to 60 targets per sample in 3.5 hours. Multiple calibrators and standards are also included in each sample, so there is no need to run these in a separate well. 

The result? More high quality answers per well.
