Platforms

 Colors for research is a licensed service provider for platforms and technologies from Qiagen, Applied Biosystems, Luminex and Miltneyi

            
QIAGEN
QIAGEN's real-time PCR cycler, the Rotor-Gene Q, combines multiple optimized design features to provide the outstanding performance and reliable results that your research demands. Together with optimized QIAGEN kits for real-time PCR, the Rotor-Gene Q enables streamlined analysis for a wide range of applications.
          
The innovative QIAcube uses advanced technology to process QIAGEN spin columns, enabling seamless integration of automated, low-throughput sample prep into your laboratory workflow. No change of purification chemistry is required, assuring fast startup and immediate results. All steps in the purification procedure are fully automated-and up to 12 samples can be processed per run.       

Luminex
The Luminex System is a  flexible analyzer based on the principles of flow cytometry that is designed to meet the needs of laboratory medicine and the care of patients, as well being used in the research environment. The system enables you to multiplex (simultaneously measure) up to 100 analytes in a single microplate well, using very small sample volumes. The system delivers fast and cost-effective bioassay results on many assay formats including nucleic acid assays, receptor-ligand assays, immunoassays and enzymatic assays.   

Miltenyi
The autoMACS™ Pro Separator is a benchtop instrument for high-speed automated magnetic cell sorting of multiple samples under standardized conditions. Employing MACS® Technology, the autoMACS Pro Separator is designed for the selection of target cells in a fully automated, walk-away fashion. It combines all the benefits of the proven autoMACS Technology with novel features such as automated magnetic labeling and the sensor-controlled processing of multiple samples.

Applied Biosystems
The 3500 8-capillary platform is the new standard in capillary electrophoresis.   
The 3500 can run a wide variety of applications —including de novo sequencing and resequencing (mutational profiling)—as well as microsatellite analysis, MLPA™, LOH, MLST, AFLP® and SNP validation or screening.   

The StepOne™ Real-Time PCR System from Applied Biosystems brings total confidence to our researchers work, as it collects and saves data from all filters in every run without depending on a computer or plate setup.
