The Applied Biosystems 7500 Real-Time PCR Instrument is a real-time nucleic acid amplification and fluorescence detection system. The 7500 Real-Time PCR Instrument delivers the performance required for high-quality results in a 96-well format.

  • 96-well format eases plate setup if automation is not available
  • Accommodates tube strips, which can be capped immediately after pipetting each sample
  • Fast mode completes runs in less than forty minutes
  • Optional standard mode facilitates use of standard length real-time PCR assays without changing thermal cycling parameters

COVID Clinical Testing

Burning Rock developed and implemented tools to deliver COVID-19 Molecular PCR test for the novel COVID-19 disease. Our CLIA-certified Irvine lab serves as a diagnostic/screening site to help our customers for highly specific detection of COVID-19 infection to help guide clinical and infection control decisions. The highly sensitive method with Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by FDA qualitatively detects nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA to identify active or recent infections.

We work with hospitals, physicians, and organizations to provide laboratory-based PCR COVID-19 testing and communication of tests results.  All samples are processed with a quick turnaround time at our CLIA high complexity laboratory, and test reports conform with U.S. federal CLIA requirements. In addition, we provide clinical trial services for COVID manufactures who are interested in FDA registration and clearance.
