Canon BioMedical launches the Novallele™ HRM Analyzer

06:14 EDT 8 Aug 2017 | PR Newswire

MELVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientists that genotype using a thermocycler typically rely on the software accompanying the instrument to analyze their data. Data from one thermocycler cannot be uploaded to the software of a different thermocycler, which prevents the comparison of data attained on different thermocyclers. Canon BioMedical has solved this problem by providing free, web-based software capable of analyzing data from different thermocyclers and well plate formats.

The Novallele HRM Analyzer provides an intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface with comprehensive algorithms capable of analyzing high-resolution melting (HRM) data from different thermocyclers.

PCR followed by HRM is a fast, reliable, and cost-effective method for DNA genotyping. The Novallele HRM Analyzer compliments the Novallele genotyping assays, in conjunction with the Novallele Controls Sets, to seamlessly analyze HRM data. The software does not require download or installation.

"Scientists often have many different types of thermocyclers in their labs," states Akiko Tanaka, CEO of Canon BioMedical. "We developed the Novallele HRM Analyzer so researchers could analyze their HRM data using one tool. The software adds to our goal of offering a complete genotyping solution."
