Outstanding Performance – qTOWER3

The qTOWER3 product family guarantees well-founded real-time results as it benefits from peerless temperature control precision in the sample block regardless of the number of samples used – the number of samples can range from 96 up to 384. The patented high-performance optics guarantee the outstanding homogeneous excitation and illumination of all individual samples. The qTOWER3 product family achieves unique flexibility with its proven filter module equipment, which can be freely configured and expanded at any time, and enables up to six-fold multiplexing. The patented fiber-optic shuttle system with its unique light source, composed of four high-performance LEDs, guarantees the ideal excitation of known fluorescent dyes up to the deep red range. In the process, the detection module can accept up to six different color filter modules. The retrofitting option ensures that users can also integrate future innovative developments from Analytik Jena.

The proven silver block technology of the qPCR cycler offers outstanding control precision of ± 0.1 °C over the entire 96 well block in 0.2 mL format. Thanks to the gradient function, the device can be optimally adapted to new assays. The qTOWER3 is available either as a stand-alone device with integrated touchscreen operation (10“) or as a computer-aided system. The software contains a broad spectrum of optimized analysis algorithms, including absolute and relative quantification, ddCt method, PCR efficiency, allelic discrimination, end-point detection, and melting curve and protein analysis. With steadily growing sample volumes and new options for molecular biology experiments, the requirements for quantitative real-time PCR are changing. The transition to the multiwell format with 384 samples opens up new application areas in gene expression, mutation analysis, and diagnostics.

The qTOWER3 84 includes all of the strengths of the qTOWER3 product family and transfers its precise performance to the 384 well high-throughput format. The proven high-performance optics have been expanded to 16 fibers and enable an ultra-fast read-out time of just 6 seconds for a complete 348 well plate – regardless of the number of filters used.

Technology Highlights

Superior temperature performance by proven block technology

The sample block forms the basis for the reliable performance of quantitative real-time PCR analysis. Powered by proven Biometra block technology, high quality block materials and advanced Peltier technology provide unsurpassed temperature control accuracy and excellent temperature uniformity across the qTOWER³ sample block for either 96 or up to 384 samples. This not only provides excellent data accuracy, but shortens the run times of qPCR programs, contributing to complete user confidence. To ensure highest specificity for different assays, the instrument is equipped with a gradient function. Depending on the cycler model, the temperature gradient function allows the evaluation of 12 or 24 annealing temperatures to determine the best reaction conditions for multiple primer sets in a single run to ensure efficient specific amplification of all targets.

  • Excellent temperature uniformity across the entire sample block
  • Exceptional heating and cooling rates for faster cycling times
  • Advanced gradient tool allows a temperature spread of 40 °C/24 °C to evaluate 12 to 24 annealing temperatures in a single run
  • Easy transfer of results thanks to largely linear temperature steps from column to column
Continuously unambiguous results through patented fiber optic system

In the application area of quantitative real-time PCR, a wide range of fluorescent dyes with different characteristics are used. In order to achieve an excellent data quality of fluorescent measurements, the qTOWER³ family is equipped with a patented fiber optic detection system (FOS – fiber-optic system). The 8 or 16 optical fibers provide homogeneous illumination and read-out of each individual well for exact, meaningful results. A novel (RGBW) light source in combination with a sensitive Photo-multiplier tube (PMT) detector and a finely tuned set of excitation and emission filters guarantees optimized excitation for each individual sample while detecting the emitted fluorescent signals with extraordinary homogeneity. The ability to change or retrofit color modules increases the flexibility in the choice of fluorescent dyes that can be used to perfectly meet your current and future requirements for multiplex applications.

  • Patented fiber optics guarantees homogeneous illumination of each individual well
  • No edge effects – no need for a passive reference needed
  • Enhanced multi-target detection capabilities for up to six targets
  • Color modules can be upgraded/expanded
  • Calibration free optical unit
  • Broad dynamic range
