7900HT Fast Real-Time PCR System
96 fast- or 384-well plate compatibility (the TaqMan® Low Density Array).
Fast PCR option reduces run time to about 35 minutes in a standard 96-well format.
A laser scans and excites the fluorescent dyes in each of the wells.
Continuous wavelength detection from 500-660 nm allows the use of multiple fluorophores in a single reaction.
MiSeq Benchtop Sequencer from Illumina (NGS)
With MiSeq, you can:
- Multiplex up to 96 samples per run for greater efficiency.
- Get accurate bi-directional amplicon sequencing.
- Generate complete de novo assemblies.
- Produce 2 x 300 paired-end reads and up to 15 Gb of data in a single run.

QIAGEN Tissue Lyser
For high-throughput disruption of a wide range of biological samples
- Fast - disruption of up to 48 samples in as little as 2-4 minutes
- Disruption is achieved through the beating and grinding effect of beads
- Cross-contamination-free – closed system prevents tube-to-tube carryover
- Reproducible – highly standardized disruption methods
- Flexible – compatible with different sample types and disruption buffers
- Integrated – part of QIAGEN’s tissue-management system from collection/stabilization to purification
You have to buy your own QIAGEN kits and Beads, suitable for use with the TissueLyser system.
