LightCycler Nano launches

IT-IS Life Science are proud to announce that the preview of our internally developed instrument created such an impression with its outstanding specification and low price point that Roche Applied Science have entered an exclusive OEM license agreement with us for the instrument.
This is their press release:
With “Size: Reduced. Fun: Amplified.”, Roche Applied Science (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX:
RHHBY) launched its new real-time PCR system on June 27th, 2011. The small, silent, sleek LightCycler Nano Instrument supports state-of-the-art technology for fast PCR protocols featuring leading edge thermal resolution and reproducibility. This powerful newcomer to the LightCycler family offers plenty of options in an incredibly small platform.
As reported earlier, the LightCycler Nano Real-Time PCR System is the product of an exclusive OEM agreement with IT-IS Life Sciences Ltd (UK and Ireland), using proprietary Roche dyes and reagents for precise and reproducible DNA amplification and melting curve analysis. Complete spectral information is provided for a broad range of dyes, supporting all state-of-the art assay formats and real-time PCR applications.
With the LightCycler Nano System, Roche Applied Science has created something special. Intuitive in design and capable of being used with or without a personal computer, researchers will have more fun acquiring cutting-edge results! The LightCycler Nano System can be used in networks, and does not require a dedicated computer. Either a preferred Mac, PC, or Linux Operating System, or simply a USB stick can be used to start a run.
Gerd Haberhausen, Life Cycle Leader qPCR and Nucleic Acid Preparation at Roche Applied Science, reported that “Like all LightCycler Real-Time PCR Instruments, the LightCycler Nano Real-Time PCR Instrument produces high quality qPCR, genotyping and high resolution melting data using easy-fit reagents, reaction vessels and instrumentation.” He adds: “The LightCycler Nano Real-Time PCR System was built to enjoy in every lab, on every bench. Serious PCR and fun!”
