Our lab is in the east,
We are plan to buy a RT PCR,
AB or roche,

Normally how much we will cost for AB 7500 or roche 480?
Is there university discount?
Thanks!

Your best bet will be to talk to a representative of the company that makes/sells the items you are looking at. There are also sites such as Biocompare that may be useful for you.

Yes getting quotes from different vendors is probably the best approach.

I have used the biorad instrument and the AB step one plus. I prefer the step one plus for it s ease of use and the software is also very user friendly. About the price I think the AB step one plus is around $40,000.

Hope this helps

There is a fine line between persistence and obstinacy. I have come to realize the key is to choose a problem that is worth persistent effort.

We are using real-time PCR from Stratagene
It is relatively cheap and works fine
