The Focus/3M™ Integrated Cycler/ Microfluidic Molecular System is the result of collaboration between Focus™ (Quest Diagnostic™) and 3M which has resulted in one of the fastest PCR Cyclers on the market. Used in research on the H1N1 virus and other diseases it has won awards including the 2011 Edison Award (bronze) for the best new science and medical diagnostic product and the 2011 (gold) Medical Design Excellence award.
This system allows the user to run clinically validated real-time PCR for quantitative, qualitative and multi-analyte detection. Using the Simplexa™ molecular assays, the instrument has a small footprint, lightweight designake,a useful and valuable addition to any lab. Extremely fast (>5°C/S) ramp rates lead to full results in a very short amount of time. Utilizing a 96-well single-use universal disc or an 8-well direct amplification reusable disc it gets precise readings with little error. The machine runs on 120/220VAC. It measures 12″X8″X12″ and weighs in at slightly over 17 pounds.
We bought these instruments directly from Quest about a month ago, so they have been well cared for and show very little signs of use. They will be packed for shipping in the original factory box with the power cord included. We do not supply the computer or software, consumables, discs, or technical support. All things needed will have to be ordered from Focus™. We are selling these units at a extremely reduced price because we do not normally work on these units. We have tested for power-up only and what you see in the pictures is what you will get. We will accept returns up to thirty days after date of you recieving them.
CSI ships worldwide and we are more than willing to answer any questions you may have. Please drop us a line here or give us a call at 209-288-2445 and we will be happy to get back to you.
