Analytik Jena collaborates with TATAA Biocenter

Analytik Jena's qTOWER3

TATAA Biocenter has expanded its real-time PCR offerings with a thermocycler from Analytik Jena.

The provider of training in molecular diagnostics will use the qTOWER3 in PCR training.

The system’s detection module can be equipped with up to six different filter modules.

Scan time is six seconds for the plate, irrespective of the number of dyes detected.

“Now, we have the possibility to compare the qTOWER³ to similar qPCR instruments on the market. It is perfect for us to give users an opportunity to test it side-by-side alongside other instruments on the market at the TATAA courses,” said Melanie Jahn, product manager at Analytik Jena.

TATAA Biocenter courses are held globally and supported by instrument providers in molecular analyses.

TATAA has laboratories for qPCR based analysis in Europe and provides nucleic acids and protein analyses services using qPCR, dPCR, microarray and NGS to pharmaceutical and biotech companies in compliance with ISO 17025.

It has facilities in Gothenburg, Sweden and Prague, Czech Republic.

Dr Mikael Kubista, founder and CEO of TATAA Biocenter, said: “People come from all around the world to TATAA to be trained in qPCR, and they expect to get the chance to try out the best qPCR instruments there are.

“The qTOWER³ is certainly one of them, and it will become an attractive option to those looking for a new instrument.”
