Meet the Newest Member of ZyGEM’s Technology Family – the ZyGEM QX

Research concept of ZyGEM’s QX

In mid-2017, our research partners at Otago University received NZ $6 million in funding to work jointly with ZyGEM NZ to combine the Portable PDQeX nucleic extraction instrument with a solid-state qPCR device. This integrated extraction qPCR instrument will have no moving parts other than a cooling fan and has a running time of less than 15 minutes sample to answer. 

We are planning models with dual wavelength, 16 qPCR reactions performed on 1, 2, 4 or 8 samples with initial models expected to be available by 2020.
