Molecular diagnostics is growing rapidly and is becoming dynamic and transformative in diagnostics arena. With the available advanced technologies, molecular diagnostics has revolutionized healthcare in treating many disease states. Molecular diagnostics aims at detecting and measuring the presence of genetic material or proteins associated with a specific health condition or disease, thus helping in assessing disease prognosis and therapy response and detecting minimal residual disease.
Bhat Bio-Tech India's molecular diagnostics wing aims at providing unique products to the healthcare industry that will help them to make a rapid diagnosis at an affordable price. With a result of this, we have developed an indigenous thermal cycler and launched it under the brand name "Bhat Bio-Scan DNAmp."This range of products will help customers to amplify the DNA in their own laboratories via polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to diagnose various infectious diseases. Thermal cyclers are equipped with a heating lid that presses against the lids of the reaction tubes and thus it prevents the condensation of water from the reaction mixtures on the inside of the lids. The technique being used for heating is the Peltier technique, whereas in case of our gradient thermal cycler, there are multiple lid blocks allowing different temperatures in different blocks, and thus one can carry out the PCR reactions simultaneously.
Our thermal cycler comes with the following specifications:
- Body: Metallic finish
