Anitoa is at the forefront of qPCR technology innovation, constantly pushing the boundaries of what's possible in this field. One key area where we stand out is in our use of ultra-low-light CMOS image sensors (CIS) as a core component in our qPCR instruments. These sensors enable us to achieve fast, accurate results even in challenging samples or conditions that might trip up other systems.
So, what exactly is the Anitoa ULS24, and what makes it so special? Let's take a closer look.
The ULS24 is a highly-integrated CIS that delivers ultra-low-light sensitivity, making it ideal for use in portable medical, scientific, and industrial applications. Its small form factor and low cost make it an attractive option for companies looking to develop field-portable nucleic-acid-test (NAT) systems based on fluorescence or chemiluminescence signaling principles.
One of the key advantages of the ULS24 is its ultra-low-light sensitivity. With a detection threshold of around 3.0 x 10-6 lux, it's able to pick up even the faintest signals, enabling accurate detection of nucleic acids even in low-concentration samples. This is a critical advantage in situations where sample quantity is limited, or where contaminants may be present.
In addition to its low-light sensitivity, the ULS24 also boasts a low dark current and high signal-to-noise ratio (SnR), providing excellent sensitivity and accuracy across a wide range of sample types. Its 12-bit ADC and dual gain mode further enhance its ability to detect even the subtlest changes in fluorescence or chemiluminescence signaling, while its wide dynamic range (>85dB) and excellent linearity (<0.6%) ensure that results are both accurate and reproducible.
The ULS24 is also designed with ease-of-use in mind, featuring a digital interface through Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) and a built-in junction temperature sensor. This enables rapid, reliable communication between the sensor and the qPCR instrument, ensuring that results are delivered quickly and efficiently.
Overall, the Anitoa ULS24 is a game-changer in the world of qPCR technology, enabling rapid and accurate results even in challenging samples or conditions. Its ultra-low-light sensitivity, low dark current, high SnR, and wide dynamic range make it a highly versatile tool that can be used in a wide range of applications, from medical diagnosis to environmental monitoring and beyond. With Anitoa's innovative use of this cutting-edge technology, the future of qPCR looks brighter than ever.
