The LightCycler 2.0 Instrument allows you to monitor amplification of 32 PCR products simultaneously, in real-time and online, with six different detection channels. The LightCycler Software 4.1 collects fluorescence data from all six channels at each cycle and displays it immediately. This enables you to terminate PCR runs early if signal levels are adequate, or prolong them when signals are too low. Amplification occurs in specially designed reaction capillaries. Their superior surface-to-volume ratio provides extremely rapid thermal transfer, which facilitates high-speed thermal cycling. The combination of LightCycler Capillaries and the air-driven temperature control of the LightCycler 2.0 Instrument ensures rapid PCR. An entire 35-cycle run can be performed in as little as 30 minutes (with 20 μl capillaries) to 60 minutes (with 100 μl capillaries).
