A Complete Walk-Away Solution for Gene Expression
RT-qPCR is arguably the most sensitive technology available for measuring endogenous gene expression. However, despite having clear advantages over reporter-based methods, rigorous sample preparation steps and reagent costs have prohibited the use of RT-qPCR when high throughput analysis is required. Overcoming this, use of the Echo liquid handler to transfer cell lysates and novel one-step qPCR reagents has demonstrated a tremendous reduction in reaction volumes while improving data quality. To expand these benefits even further, the Access laboratory workstation incorporates the Echo liquid handler into a turnkey, automated solution for high throughput gene expression—cell lysates direct to PCR in a single step.
- One-step gene expression at volumes as low as 250 nL—using industry-standard reagents and detection platforms
- Simplified transition to 384- and 1536-well assays
- High-throughput screens using primary cells
- Access workstations tailored for walk-away gene expression screening
