Volpi’s Offering in the Field of OEM qPCR-Measurement Systems

The challenges Quantitative polymerase chain reaction or qPCR, sometimes called real-time PCR, simultaneously detects and measures the amount of a specific DNA target in a sample by amplifying that target during cycles of heating and cooling the sample. Since its development in the early 1990s, qPCR has become an essential part of many molecular diagnostic

Fluorescence Calibration Tools

The challenge Many IVD assays and devices rely on fluorescence emission and detection. This is particularly true in the field of molecular diagnostics, where real-time PCR and other instruments that detect and process fluorescent dye signals are used every day in both research and clinical laboratories. Calibration of fluorimeters in in vitro diagnostic (IVD) devices

LED Light Engines as Substitutes for Halogen-Based Illumination in IVD

The challenge Many clinical chemistry and immunology readers on the market today for diagnostic testing still use halogen-bulb-based illumination modules with excitation filters to help obtain the photometric sample readout. Some of the analyzed signals used in these readouts have wavelengths of between 340 and 380 nanometers (nm). Because halogen bulbs emit light based on
