MJ Research DNA Engine Opticon 2 CFD-3220 Continuous Fluorescence Detector

The MJ Research Opticon is a powerfule Real-time detection tool that
simplifies DNA quantification, genotyping and many other applications.
The BioRad Opticon2 real-time fluorescence detection system features
an innovative optical design and a built-in DNA Engine thermal cycler
for extraordinary real-time performance. The Opticon 2  system
produces reliable, high-resolution results.


The Opticon 2 real-time detector employs an array of 96 blue light-
emitting diodes to excite fluorescent dyes. LEDs provide a long-lived,
maintenance-free excitation source for years of uninterrupted
performance. Emitted fluorescence is then detected by a
photomultiplier tube that not only detects, but also amplifies the
fluorescence signal. A built-in bandpass-filter detection system
separates the specific signal from the background, thereby increasing
the signal-to-noise ratio. This detection strategy delivers
exceptional sensitivity, resulting in the ability to detect as little
as one initial template copy, and to accurately quantify initial
template over a broad dynamic range. This reduces the need for time-
consuming dilutions, even with samples of unknown or widely varying
concentration. The Opticon detector's sensitivity also allows a
reduction in theconsumption of costly reagents without sacrificing
data quality.
