PEBBLE-R qcLAMP Platform
PEBBLE-R qc-LAMP is a platform intended for Research Use Only (RUO) and is the only “open” compact, portable and affordable device for performing real-time and quantitative colorimetric LAMP. PEBBLE-R is “open” for the use or reagents of the reseacher’s choice and it is comparable with different colorimetric dyes. PEBBLE-R can be operated after scanning a data matrix code (QR code) which can be purchased from BIOPIX-T.
qcLAMP reactions take place at a constant temperature. A novel way is used for heating inside the reaction chamber. During the amplification, the color change is monitored via a mini digital camera. Color change is expressed as color index units (pixels) on the Y-axis of a real-time curve that is displayed on the screen of a smart device through an Android application developed by BIOPIX-T.
The device connects via Bluetooth to a smartphone or tablet and operates through an Android based application (Pebble-R platform) powered by BIOPIX-T. Data are automatically uploaded and stored in the BIOPIΧ-T cloud system. The user can automatically send the data to the registered email account or check the history of measurements directly from the smartphone application. Pebble-R can be operated only after scanning a QR code provided by BIOPIX-T which allows the PEBBLE-R to execute a number of individual reactions. When a QR code is completely used, the device will not operate until a new QR code is scanned. QR codes can be purchased from the website of BIOPIX-T.
The dimensions of PEBBLE-R are: 18.1cm x 10.7cm x 5.2cm and its weight is <300 gr. It runs with low power (5V, 2.4 A). The PEBBLE-R comes in five different color variations.
The QR codes can only be used in combination with a PEBBLE-R qcLAMP Platform with each QR code corresponding to 100 new individual reactions.
*The QR codes cannot be used with the diagnostic PEBBLE qcLAMP Platform.
