The Biomeme Franklin® is a fully portable thermocycler capable of real-time PCR, RT-PCR, qPCR and isothermal analysis, the gold standard in molecular detection technology. Each hand-held unit is equipped with 9 sample wells enabling multiplex detection of up to 27 targets per PCR run across 3 different color channels including Green (FAM/SYBR), Amber (TexasRedX), and Red (ATTO647N). The thermocycler is just under 3 lbs, battery-operated for maximum mobility in and out of the lab, and in less than an hour, Franklin® can determine the presence or absence of the target(s) you are looking for.
Biomeme Go, an intuitive smartphone app, pairs wirelessly with each Franklin® thermocycler so you can easily run, monitor, analyze, and share your PCR data. By design, the app is incredibly easy to use regardless of your level of PCR expertise.
