The best tool to make your QPCR Diagnostics application faster and easier

GENECHECKER™ has adopted a special polymer chip (Rapi:chip™) which enables much faster thermal transfer to the samples when compared to conventional PCR tubes or plates. The thermal cycling mechanism of GENECHECKER™ achieves 8°C/sec ramping rate for both heating and cooling.


Upgraded camera module and state of the art software technology improves real-time analysis.

The Integrated camera module of GENECHECKER™ fully monitors and records the fluorescence signal of each sample and the recorded fluorescence values are processed and displayed by GENERECORDER software. Using this unique data analysis method, GENECHECKER™ provides very precise results of reactions compared to conventional real-time PCR instruments in the market which are collecting fluorescence data through an optical scanning method. The user interface of GENERECORDER was designed to help general real-time PCR instrument users operate this innovative instrument very easily. GENERECORDER provides amplification curves, melting curves and melting peaks for easy analysis.

GENECHECKER comes with GENERECORDER software  and is easily  installed. No user’s calibration is needed to run the instrument.


GENERECORDER Screenshot after a reaction


1.   Ct values depending on DNA quantity are displayed. Threshold value to determine Ct      values are automatically scaled but user can also set desired threshold value. Tm      values of each sample are displayed.

2.   By clicking this button, Ct value and Tm value of each well are displayed.

3.   User can type the name of sample in each well. By clicking each well, user can select       sample of which curves need to be displayed and compared.

4.   After 15 cycles are performed, these curves are automatically displayed on the       program window. Depending on the expressions of genes, curves having different 

      Ct values are displayed

5 & 6. By comparing melting curves and peaks, user can confirm that PCR products of        each well are its target gene or not.
