EVOMET, a cooperation between Creative Instruments and Solectrix GmbH, is developing a high-end real-time cycler for molecular diagnostics. The technological focus is on the development of a highly sensitive, two-dimensional detection system, combined with a temperature control technology for the high-precision temperature control of a large number of analytical samples. The system represents a high-end solution for carrying out PCR analysis. Its particular strength lies in a highly sensitive detection system with low spectral crosstalk and a temperature control unit with extreme homogeneity in respect to the temperature of the whole vessel area.
With the new temperature control unit, EVOMET has succeeded in achieving a homogeneity in the automatic heating and cooling phase that has been improved by a factor of 10 compared to previous systems. The innovation of the system is the ability to control and optimize all heating and cooling elements individually.
