The TouchTools PCR Wizard is a Freedom EVOware add-on that offers automation of PCR reaction setup on Freedom EVO platforms. It can simplify the setup of applications including end-point, real-time, and multiplex PCR; sequencing; genotyping and gene expression; as well as pathogen and mutagenesis detection. The wizard’s touchscreen operation and step-by-step instructions can guide users through setup, allowing sample information to be entered manually, imported from a file, or identified by barcode scanning. Users can optimize 96- and 384-well PCR plate layouts to meet specific workflow needs with a single setup required for multiple PCR plates per run. Data can be exported in formats ready for the most popular real-time cyclers.
