Hercules, CA — January 12, 2015 — Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BIO and BIOb) today announced the launch of the ddPCR™ KRAS Screening Multiplex Kit, the latest offering in the company’s Droplet Digital™ PCR line of predesigned, fully wet-lab validated assays. The ddPCR KRAS Screening Multiplex Kit offers improved sensitivity and simultaneous detection of the seven most common KRAS mutations in a single ddPCR experiment.
KRAS mutations are found in 90% of pancreatic cancer cases and 30% of colorectal cancer cases, making it a gene of great interest to cancer researchers. The Multiplex Kit is able to detect and quantify extremely low levels (down to 0.2%) of KRAS mutant DNA in a single assay. Cancer samples are often available in limited quantities. Using the Multiplex Kit, researchers can derive results from low amounts of starting material.
The QX200 AutoDG Droplet Digital PCR System provides absolute quantification of target DNA or RNA molecules for EvaGreen and probe-based Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR™) applications. The Automated Droplet Generator simplifies the ddPCR workflow, making digital PCR both scalable and practical.
The AutoDG Instrument eliminates user-to-user variability, allowing you to fully exploit the precision of ddPCR technology by providing more consistent droplet counts across users and plates. The AutoDG Instrument also minimizes hands-on time — it takes less than 5 minutes to load the instrument, and no supervision or user activity is required during droplet generation.
The ZOE Fluorescent Cell Imager eliminates the complexities of cell imaging associated with traditional microscopes. This fluorescence imaging system combines the ease of use of a personal tablet with the power of an inverted microscope.
An Android-based platform, the ZOE Cell Imager uses an intuitive touch-screen interface to control the brightfield, three fluorescence channels, and the integrated digital camera.
The ZOE Fluorescent Cell Imager is a complete digital imaging system, allowing users to view samples, capture and store images, and create multicolor overlays. Thanks to the built-in light shield, the ZOE Cell Imager does not require a darkroom for fluorescence imaging.
The iQ-Check™ Prep is a liquid handling platform performing DNA extraction and PCR plate set-up. Designed for use with the full range of iQ-Check food pathogen detection kits and the CFX96 Deep Well™ real-time PCR system, it provides a completely integrated automated solution for food pathogen testing. Optimal ease of use and full traceability is achieved by the link between the CFX Manager™ IDE Software and a laboratory information management system (LIMS).
The iQ-Check Prep Solution provides increased confidence in results, high reproducibility and robustness to routine testing labs. It fits seamlessly in laboratory workflow without disrupting it and is an ideal solution for medium to high throughput testing laboratories.
