Improve your quality assurance
by analyzing DNA on-site

The qPCR hardware: a small, orange box.

In the emerging and accelerating craft beer market, product quality is essential. To address this, we provide you with a qPCR system that is accurate, reliable, and cost-efficient. We do this by offering a validated open-source solution.

Our solution allows you to source materials directly from suppliers, dropping costs significantly and enabling you to reach standards on a bio-molecular level.

The solution involves beer-specific assays, built on a revolutionary hardware platform by Quantabio, that give you the highest degree of scientific data while being completely transparent and in-house.

Data Collection

How It Works

Our straightforward workflow means that anyone can get started with qPCR.

  1. Collect sample
  2. Simultaneously extract DNA and purify sample
  3. Prepare master mix
  4. Load Q tubes and begin qPCR cycles
  5. Start immediate data analysis with the Q
