PCR can be used to measure the quantity of DNA or RNA in a clinical sample. The quantitative PCR (Q-PCR) is very useful in diagnosis and monitoring response to treatment in infectious or malignant diseases. Q-PCR is mostly done by real time monitoring of amplification requiring expensive equipment. GTI-PCR Reader-G provides a cheap solution to Q-PCR by measuring the end point fluorescence after doing PCR in an ordinary thermal cycler by fluorescent labeled probes. GTI PCR Reader-G is designed to read the green endpoint fluorescence (512 nm) in a PCR reaction vial with volume as low as 12ul. The fluorescence is measured through data acquisition software installed on a computer. Known positives and negatives can be used to obtain accurate quantitative PCR results.
