Sensitivity and Reproducibility
Superb Linear Range
Figure 1: Superb linear range of the LightCycler® 1536 System. Eight concentration steps of a 1:10 serial dilution from 107 to 100 copies/sample and negative controls (96 replicates each).
Outstanding Sensitivity and Reproducibility
Figure 2: Outstanding sensitivity and reproducibility of the LightCycler® 1536 System. Sixteen concentration steps of a 1:2 serial dilution from 106 to 3 x 101 copies/sample (96 replicates each) distributed in a checkerboard scheme across the entire multiwell plate, as depicted in the crossing point heatmap chart (6-times 4 x 4 replicates).
Real-Time PCR Results
Precision Melting Curve Analysis for DNA Product Identification

Figure 6: Long-term stability of the RealTime ready DNA Probes Master. Tenfold dilution steps of cDNA (starting material: 500 and 50 pg total RNA equivalents) were assayed either immediately after PCR setup or after 8, 24, and 48 hours at room temperature (standard deviation: 500 pg total RNA: 0.14; 50 pg total RNA: 0.15).
