Automated advanced results algorithm

Manual interpretation of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) data is associated with subjectivity. To further ensure reliable results, the cobas z 480 Analyzer applies an automated advanced results algorithm that interprets three key aspects of PCR data:


Growth curve shape


Growth curve height (curve amplitude)

CT value

Cycle threshold (Ct value)
