DRIFTCON® - Your Personal Measurement System For Thermal Cycler Validation
The Tool That Helps Solve Your PCR Problems
The success of your PCR reaction is dependent on the functionality of your Cycler.
The DRIFTCON system is a mobile, personal measurement device that you can use daily, weekly or monthly to monitor the performance and temperature drift of your thermal cyclers. No two thermal cyclers function identically but periodic and continuous validation with DRIFTCON offers a convenient and easy means to check if PCR tests are working within predetermined parameters. Detailed knowledge of your cycler's true temperature performance can also enable adjustments for improved yields and use of less reagents - saving time and costs.
DRIFTCON measures temperature accuracy- deviation of the actual block temperature from the set temperature. It also monitors uniformity - the spread of the temperature between wells on the same block. It can also provide data on the speed, or ramp rate, at which the cycler changes temperature and report on any under or overshoots - all significant factors affecting the success of your PCR reactions.
Every temperature measurement systems regardless of the thermal cycler model you have, or manufacturer, is performed using a standardized and prescribed temperature protocol, enabling the comparison of results and any deviation from protocol standards.
DRIFTCON temperature results are analysed and reported through an automated process, prohibiting any alterations of the acquired sample data, helping you keep a record of all your results.
