Moving the sample between high and low temperatures using a micro flow channel achieves reduced size, less power consumption, and higher speed.
Conventional temperature control method
In conventional PCR device, heating and cooling cycles are repeated using a single heater.
Heating and cooling cycles take time.
Power consumption is great.
The heat block and circuit are large.
Newly-developed temperature control method
With high-speed PCR technology, the sample in the micro flow channel is moved between high and low temperature ranges repeatedly.
The sample is heated and cooled fast.
Power consumption is low.
Smaller heat block and circuit can be achieved.
