Arizona Genetics Core


Real Time PCR

Arizona Genetics Core offers 3 Cyclers for Quantitative or Real Time PCR. After a brief training, local users can schedule time on the instrument and run their own samples. Real Time PCR is also utilized as one of the platforms in our genotyping services.

General Information

Sample Input

Users provide their own consumables when using the instruments.
