Table 1 Comparison of the duration of the DAE analysis between the HR-1™ and the LightScanner® instruments, for 96 samples

From: Detecting differential allelic expression using high-resolution melting curve analysis: application to the breast cancer susceptibility gene CHEK2

DAE step HR-1™ instrument LightScanner® instrument
PCRs Same duration Same duration
Data acquisition 2 days 12 minutes
Data analysis 1 full day 15 minutes
  1. The HR-1™ instrument can only analyze a single sample per run making data analysis time consuming. The LightScanner® instrument, with its 384-well plate format, is of greater practical efficiency. Data analysis was performed using an analysis tool that we developed.
