WHAT PEOPLE SAY
George Zhu, President of GM Biosciences
After a satisfactory test of the (UF-100 GENECHECKER) system, we bought one unit, it was very affordable. The GENECHECKER is a very small, portable PCR machine in which we finish our PCR in about 10 to 15 minutes. Our company has a patented technology called Visual-PCR in which PCR changes colors along reaction. The sharp color change is then observed by naked eyes, and thus gel electrophoresis is eliminated. Powered by the GENECHECKER system, our Visual-PCR becomes an ultra-fast, affordable and portable POCT (point-of-care test) platform. I am very pleased to couple GENECHECKER with our Visual-PCR, and would be very happy to recommend it.

Food safety is paramount to our business’ sustainability. We have worked diligently for many years to create and maintain robust programs that cover everything from seed to finished product. Our food safety programs are validated by our testing protocols at the packing plant. We have utilized PCR level testing for over ten years and that has been a tremendous asset in verifying that our up-stream programs are effective at reducing the likelihood of microbial contamination. The early days of PCR were expensive both in equipment costs as well as the necessary consumables to operate a thorough testing program.
We are excited about the future growth potential of on-farm PCR level testing that the UF-150 GENECHECKER will provide. The fresh produce industry has been waiting for the technology curve/price curve to kick in on this technology. Victory Scientific has helped clear this hurdle in a meaningful way!
What has proven exciting for us is the ability to maintain the robustness of the testing protocols at a much lower price point. We believe strongly that these advances provide many more farms the opportunity to test on-farm and greatly decrease the likelihood of food-borne illness outbreaks that are so devastating to consumers and the industry. We would like to thank and congratulate Victory Scientific on this profound advancement for the fresh produce industry.

While at an on campus vendor show, I met the representatives from Victory Scientific for the first time. I was immediately interested in their UF-100 GENECHECKER Ultra-Fast Thermal Cycler, as this machine was advertised to perform a PCR in as little as 15 minutes, which would greatly improve my research efficiency. I was given a brand new machine, Rapi:chips and a 2X master mix to demo. Each chip contains 16 wells that holds 10 ml of a reaction. The chips are easy to work with, as I was even able to teach summer undergraduates with no laboratory experience to use them.
The machine itself is also easy to program. The master mix works very well, and the PCR product yields are equivalent to a traditional thermal cycler… Importantly, reactions using other DNA polymerases can be performed using this machine. The machine itself is very reasonably priced, and the consumables needed are on par with standard PCR supplies.
Finally, Victory Scientific has been an absolute pleasure to work with from the beginning they have been outstanding, answering all of my technical support questions in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend the UF-100 GENECHECKER unit for anyone looking for a quality PCR machine for a reasonable price that will save time in the lab, from a company that is easy and pleasant to work with.
