Precise, Consistent qPCR Results
Ultra-tight replicates. Results so repeatable they can be compared across runs. Quantification so accurate that two-fold differences in gene expression can be detected.Explore Performance
Powerful, User-Friendly Software
Rapidly design, run, and analyze advanced experiments.
Browser-based software is always up to date. There’s nothing to install: Open qPCR’s software runs right in your web browser on any Mac, PC, or tablet.Explore Software
Compact, Portable, Connected
Start a run at the lab, view results from your home, or anywhere you have Internet.
Or take Open qPCR into the field. Built like a tiny tank and weighing only 4 kg, it’s easy to transport, and can run anywhere you have power.
Get rapid results for rapid decision making. Open qPCR can run 40 cycles of PCR in 20 minutes, making it the device of choice for time-sensitive applications.
Avoid vendor lock-in. Open qPCR works with all PCR master mixes, probe chemistries, and dyes.
We promote research & support the community by making our core bioinformatics algorithms open source.
Control Open qPCR via your laboratory automation system or custom software with our open API.
