Clarity™ and Clarity Plus™ digital PCR systems can be used for:
1) Rare target mutation
2) Gene expression
3) Copy number variation analysis
4) NGS quantification
5 DNA methylation
6) GMO analysis
7) Viral load quantification
8) Bacteria quantification
In principle, any applications that involves PCR can be used with Clarity™ digital PCR system.
It is recommended to run a minimum of 8 samples and a maximum according to the number of PCR machines available. This is possible because the reading of the strips is fast and the Clarity reader allows up to 32 samples to be read at one go in 15 minutes. Typically 96 samples will take a total of 4 hours.
The Clarity Reader detects for FAM and HEX fluorophores. Any fluorophores that shares similar excitation and emission spectrum should be compatible.
The Clarity Plus reader detects for 6 colours (FAM, HEX, ATTO550, Texas Red, Cy5 and Cy5.5) and can detect up to 5 colours simultaneously.
For simple calculation, 96 samples will take around 4 hours for Clarity system and 5 hours for Clarity Plus system. Assuming a single work day of 8 hours, 192 or 150 samples can be ran per day respectively.
Our compatible fluorophores for Clarity system are FAM and HEX. Clarity Plus system would see our capability expanded to include ATTO550, Texas Red, Cy5 and Cy5.5.
Any fluorophores that have the same excitation and emission spectrum should also be compatible with our systems.
