Most Sophisticated and Accurate Thermal Cycler Validation Service
Anachem offers the most sophisticated and accurate temperature validation service for your PCR thermal cycler with UKAS accreditation. CYCLERtest provides assurance, with detailed information on how your PCR machine is performing throughout a reaction. Reporting on the real time performance of your PCR machines helps you better understand your results, adapt protocols for more efficient use of valuable reagents and conform to regulatory requirements.
Essential for Forensic and Diagnostic Applications
For forensic and diagnostic applications complete confidence in the procedure and data obtained is essential and can only be guaranteed with regular checking of the instrument used. UKAS accreditation of this system ensures you are complying to the most stringent laboratory practices of ISO:17025, whether you work to these guidelines or not.
Biological Positive, Negative & Threshold Controls
are Insufficient to Guarantee Reliable PCR Results
The use of biological positive, negative and threshold controls is insufficient to guarantee reliable PCR results but the unique method of CYCLERtest performs both static and dynamic testing on every commercially available PCR thermal cycler. CYCLERtest uses the MTAS® (Mobile Temperature Acquisition System) that has been calibrated by KEMA (recognised internationally and by UKAS). It is verified by a “Council for Accreditation”.
Encrypted Test Results
Test results are analysed and reported through an automated process, prohibiting any alterations of the acquired sample data. The Data and layouts are encrypted and cannot be modified. A “Certificate of Thermal Validation” accompanies every test report. This certificate represents the results of the measured and calculated main parameters of the tested instrument.
Only Performed by Trained and Certified Technicians
Anachem’s policy is that only trained and certified technicians perform these validations and certifications. A Technician will come to your laboratory for maximum efficiency and convenience and test your thermal cyclers, providing a full report on their functionality. A full understanding of your thermal cycler’s performance will improve optimisation of PCR reactions
