  • fasttime

    Ultrafast Time-to-Result

    Thanks to the low heat capacity of the optical thin film, we can realize ultrafast PCR thermal cycling that finishes 40 cycles less than 10 minutes while ensuring the same level of sensitivity of conventional PCR systems.

    Superior Performance

    In addition to the fast PCR thermal cycling, the precise temperature control capability of our technology allows us to reduce non-specific amplification and PCR amplification errors that help us to look for a needle in a haystack.

  • robust-architecture

    Robust System Architecture

    Unique features of Photothermal heating including non-contact heat generation, direct heat transfer from optical thin film to PCR solutions, and localized heating contribute to build simple and robust structure of the system and consumables.
