Real-Time PCR


The TCGA offers real-time PCR instruments for use by users within or outside of the University of Dundee including two Applied Biosystems Quantstudio 7 Flex instruments (equipped with 96-well fast blocks and array card blocks) and an ABI 7900HT fast Real-Time PCR system (equipped with 96-well fast block, array card and 384-well blocks). Time on any of the real-time PCR machines can be arranged using the University of Dundee’s Bumblebee instrument booking system (University of Dundee staff and students only) or by emailing the TCGA.
