Viability PCR


  • Simultaneous photo-activation of up to 12 samples
  • Constant and uniform light dosage for optimal PMA activation
  • No heating of samples during PMA photo-activation

The BLU-V System allows the neutralization of the DNA of dead organisms through the use of photo-activation on intercalating agents. Neutralizing the DNA of dead organisms allows the downstream detection of DNA of living cells by conventional PCR or real-time PCR.

The BLU-V System is a thermally stable instrument that generates a constant and uniform light dosage to allow simultaneous photo-activation of 12 Propidium Monoazide (PMA) treated samples, permitting differentiation of live and dead microorganisms.
