Real-Time Nucleic Acid Detection system

PrimeQ® has been designed with the advantage of having an open architecture and chemistry format that allows the end user full flexibility of the methods and research they wish to pursue.

Quansoft® software and reporting

Accompanying PrimeQ® is our easy-to-use, flexible software Quansoft®, which gives you the freedom to see your raw data, choose your disposables and choose your own chemistries!

Here's just some of the things you can finally do with Quansoft®:

  • ability to create, modify and save files using Quansoft® while a program is running on the unit
  • ability to run without initially defining your plate layout and analysis criteria - just pop a prepared plate in & run a program
  • ability to export unprocessed, raw data
  • install Quansoft® on multiple PCs without paying a license fee (only a simple registration is required)
  • ability to change from first order derivative to fit points in results analysis


  • Solid state white light source and PMT (photomultiplier tube) detector gives an impressive excitation range of 470nm to 650nm and a detection range of 500nm to 710nm.
  • Multiplex - multiple wavelengths are detectable per sample using up to four paired excitation and emission filters housed in individual cartridge systems.
  • Wide dynamic range - up to at least 9 orders of magnitude from starting copy number and high sensitivity, detecting down to 1nM fluorescein and single copy templates, depending upon the assay.

Heated Lid

The flexible optical heated lid system is designed to minimize loss of sample and prevent sample condensation. Temperature controlled, it allows further method optimization where pre-incubation stages may be required (e.g. in reverse transcription techniques) or where changes in the heated lid characteristics are needed during the different stages of a program run.

Quansoft® software and reporting

Accompanying PrimeQ® is our unique, intuitive software Quansoft®. By employing a series of user-friendly windows, Quansoft® enables any real-time experiment to be created with ease.

Comprehensive, completely user customizable report formats can be selected from quantification, dissociation curve, plus/minus scoring and allelic discrimination analyses. Fully user-customizable report formats can be printed or exported to Adobe PDF, while raw data formats can be exported to MS Word, PowerPoint and Excel.
