Tecan is making it easier than ever before to set up and
miniaturize qPCR reactions. In direct response to customer
requests, the company has launched an updated software
package for its D300e Digital Dispenser, offering new
functionality and extending this innovative device’s
flexibility for genomics workflows.

The D300e’s new PCR Wizard offers fast and convenient
qPCR set-up and miniaturization

The D300e provides picoliter to microliter non-contact
dispensing of liquids directly into assay plates, and the
software now features a PCR Wizard that guides the user
through qPCR set-up. Offering accurate and reproducible
plate generation, the exceptional low volume dispensing
capabilitiy of the D300e provides a convenient solution for
the miniaturization of qPCR assays, allowing up to a
five-fold reduction in assay volumes without any loss of
data quality. Simplifying workflows and significantly
saving reagent costs, this major step forward for qPCR is
complemented by a range of other user-driven software
updates. These include the ability to use the instrument’s
high capacity D4+ cassette for reagent dispensing –
increasing the capacity from 10 μl to 200 μl for small
molecule and biomolecule dispensing – and the addition of a
number of new fluid classes, as well as extra normalization
options.

Dr Manuel Bauer, Product Manager for the Tecan D300e,
commented:

We are extremely pleased with the latest developments of
our software. These new options ensure that the D300e
continues to provide the most flexible low volume
dispensing solution on the market, helping our customers
to get more done, more quickly, and without any changes
to either the instrument hardware or consumables.
