Polymerase chain reaction (PCR), is a common method of creating copies of specific fragments of DNA. PCR rapidly amplifies a single DNA molecule into many billions of molecules. In one application of the technology, small samples of DNA, such as those found in a strand of hair at a crime scene, can produce sufficient copies to carry out forensic tests.


The following are the hardware and software components included with our PCR automated system:

  • Kinedx robotic arm
  • One to four Roche LC480 Real-Time PCRs
  • PeakRobotics hotels
  • Barcode scanner
  • High-end laboratory table with a reliable robotic arm.
  • Dynamic scheduler with lookahead feature.
  • Instrument pooling. If one real-time PCR goes down, the scheduler adjusts itself.
  • Barcode recovery. When microplate barcode can not be read, the system continues running.
  • Microplate jam recovery. When microplate jams, the system does not fetch the microplate from the corresponding nest.
  • Possibility of adding microplates during the run.
  • Can run different experiments for each batch of microplates.
  • Easy addition of a liquid handler, plate sealer or incubator.
  • Capacity: from 88 to 220 STD microplates.
  • Footprint: 64x61 inches.
