NEXTGENPCR: 30 cycli, 3 temperatures, less than 2 minutes



See 2 minute PCR at the ESHG

Molecular Biology Systems will be exhibiting at this year’s European Human Genetics Conference from June 15-18, 2019 in Gothenburg, Sweden. MBS is looking forward to meeting those attending. To learn more about NextGenPCR, stop by Booth 562 any time during the exhibit.

MBS introduces NextGenPCR. Using SBS-plate format a 100bp fragment can be amplified in 2 minutes (30 cycles, 3 temperatures). Longer fragments take slightly longer, but will still be amplified in minutes rather than hours. This versatile system lets you run 96-well plates and 384-well plates without changing blocks. Volumes range from 5 to 50 microliters. The technology has proven to work over a wide range of application.

We hope to see you in Gothenburg, Sweden!

Webinar on NextGenPCR by Gert de Vos (founder & CEO of MBS) still available for viewing

Until now PCR instruments have relied on Peltier elements to heat and cool an aluminum or silver block, accommodating 96 or 384 polypropylene tubes, holding PCR-mixes. Using this technology PCR times, for 30 cycle, 3-temperature reactions, are usually between 50 and 150 minutes. Now, NEXTGENPCR is redefining fast. The thermocycler introduces a new way to heat and cool the samples instantly, with virtually no ramp rates, losing no time getting the samples to the desired temperature.

The user can go from melting to annealing in less than 0.1 second. For a 100 base pair fragment, total reaction time is as low as 2 minutes, with 700 base pairs being amplified in 10 minutes. Adding NEXTGENPCR into workflows results in higher sample throughput. Using optimized applications, more than 10 full plate experiments per hour become possible. Operated at capacity this would mean 80, 384-well plates per day, resulting in more than 30,000 datapoints per day; far beyond the capabilities of common thermocyclers.

Gert held a live presentation about the NextGenPCR on May 31st. During the presentation, Gert has focused on the technology behind NEXTGENPCR. Special attention has paid to publications detailing 2 minute PCR data and how NEXTGENPCR amplified all 29 fragments of the BRCA1 gene in less than 10 minutes for subsequent Sanger sequencing.
