PCR Machines

The options for PCR instruments can be overwhelming.

There are countless PCR machines available in the market, each with their unique features and capabilities.

Having manufactured billions of PCR reactions for various machines, we have gained insights into the important categories that PCR applications fall into.

Are you only doing conventional PCR for gel electrophoresis? Or are you interested in real-time PCR?

With over 35 real-time PCR machines available, it's easy to get overwhelmed, but there's a shortcut.

Reading a comprehensive review can help you become aware of the landscape and understand the categories for yourself.

To further assist you, Amped PCR Ltd has developed a handy PCR reagent selector tool if you don't have time to go through the independent review below, our tool can provide you with valuable information.

One key takeaway is to "Know your ROX requirements." ROX is a passive reference dye used to normalise the sample's fluorescent signal in some machines, while others do not require it.

Machines are categorised as No ROX, Low ROX, and High ROX. Familiarising yourself with this alone can greatly help you in deciding the best PCR machine and reagent for your plans and budget.

For a more in-depth understanding, check out the independent review by Labome and try using our PCR reagent selector tool.

We hope this combination of resources will make your PCR journey hassle-free and successful.
