Iridian Introduces Standard PCR Filters


Ottawa, Canada - In an effort to support the rapidly growing use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in rapid diagnosis of diseases such as COVID-19, Iridian Spectral Technologies has introduced a line of ultra performance optical filters specifically designed for Real-Time PCR applications.  The ultra PCR fluorescence filter sets provide “more signal, with less background” improving the signal to noise ratio for these instruments.
