Multiple data points. One Sample.

When it comes to dried blood spots and other limited samples, the ability to increase the number of data points per result is especially important. Quantabio MultiPlex qPCR ToughMix pairs well with Extracta DBS to quickly extract DNA in 30 minutes or less. MultiPlex ToughMix chemistry overcomes PCR inhibitors, improving sensitivity and results to reliably detect DNA targets in SMN1, SMN2, and TREC.
