Short Description

The QX200 AutoDG Droplet Digital PCR System simplifies the Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR™) workflow, reducing hands-on time and eliminating user-to-user variability. The AutoDG Instrument brings scalability and flexibility to Bio-Rad’s ddPCR technology, the most precise and sensitive digital PCR solution for the absolute quantification of target DNA molecules.

AutoDG Instrument:
Guides setup and loading with large, color touch-screen interface and LED lighting
Compatible with both the QX100™ and QX200™ Droplet Digital™ PCR Systems
Generates droplets for 96 ddPCR reactions in under 45 minutes
One AutoDG Instrument can supply 4–5 droplet readers continuously
HEPA-filtered enclosure reduces contamination and allows the system to be placed in any lab environment
User-definable plate layout with increments of 8 wells provides run-to-run flexibility

Droplet Digital PCR Technology:

Flexible digital PCR chemistry — optimized for TaqMan Hydrolysis Probe and EvaGreen Assays
Droplet partitioning by the QX200 Droplet Digital PCR system reduces bias from amplification efficiency and PCR inhibitors
Convenient assay design — standard curves are not required
