The Driftcon system is a sophisticated temperature measurement, analysis and reporting system, which is designed for temperature calibration of (q)PCR thermocyclers. The Driftcon hardware is based on a multi-channel temperature read-out (Driftcon-II/Driftcon-III hardware box) which can acquire temperature data from connected sensors, which are available in several formats.Specially designed software (Driftcon) is used to capture the temperature data from the Driftcon hardware box and store it in a data file, along with indentification parameters. The data file is secured by an encryption method. Only trained and certified technicians are allowed to perform traceable calibrations with the Driftcon system.


  • The hardware box module converts analog temperature signals into digital values, which can be read by the Driftcon software. There are two models : Driftcon II hardware box : resolution 0.01 C, single calibration point (90 C)

  • Driftcon III hardware box : resolution 0.001 C, multiple calibration points possible



The Driftcon system has hardware box drivers included in the software installation. For proper installation of the hardware box, please refer to Driftcon hardware box driver installation guide.


The Driftcon software can be downloaded here. After following the installation instructions, you can start the software by clicking the icon on your desktop (for more information see section 5.2). If you have been using Driftcon before, please refer to the Driftcon software upgrade guide, which helps to upgrade your old driftcon installation.


The Driftcon software is used to capture the temperature data from the Driftcon hardware box and store it in a data file, along with identification parameters. The Driftcon software is also used to analyse the measurement data and compare this with the instrument market specifications. All these data and results are summarized in a Driftcon report.


Select the Driftcon software icon on the desktop or select the Driftcon software from the Program Menu. The login will appear. which allows you to login by clicking on the desired user icon and providing the corresponding password.To login select user 'Admin' and use password 'driftcon'.Click here to watch tutorial video


After entering the software succesfully you can manage your software users. In order to start a measurement you have to add devices to the Driftcon database. The next sections will describe how to manage user and devices.


Driftcon users can be defined as the users of the Driftcon system. The software requires users to be added for authentication in the system and for traceability purposes afterwards. Typically you create the required users when the system is initially received


The Driftcon software is installed with default information like instrument information, blocklayouts, probe information etc. In order to update the system to the latest definitions the synchronizer can be used. Besides definitions also application and user data can be synchronised. This data specific for your account and contains your measurements and market specifications.


After setting up your hardware and adding device(s), you can start an acquisition by selecting Start in the mainscreen. After a hardware detection the start wizard will guide you through the starting process. There are different types of measurement : Measurement Description (q)PCR Start a measurement on a (q)PCR instrument. The specification set that is selected in your software settings are used (market or custom). Application Start a measurement on a (q)PCR instrument. In the start wizard you have the option to select a specification set. Incubator Start a measurement on an incubator. Thermometer Use the Driftcon hardware as a 16 channel thermometer.


The start wizard gathers all the information needed for performing an acquisition. The outcome of the acquisition is a logfile, which contains all the information gathered in the start wizard and all the temperature information gathered during the acquisition. The software automatically detects the end of the protocol and finish the acquisition with the measurement results.


During the acquisition the Driftcon user can add notes to the logfile (select Edit->Notes... from the window menu). The Driftcon system distinguishes between private and public notes. Private notes will only appear in the software and a public note will automatically appear on the Driftcon report.


At time of manufacture the Driftcon system (hardware module and probes) is ISO 17025 calibrated. A calibration certificate is included with the system. The calibration data for the individual temperature sensors are stored in an internal memory chip in the probe. Multiple probes can be used in combination with a hardware module, without making calibration adjustments. To guarantee the highest measurement accuracy, uncertainty and traceability the Driftcon probe must be calibrated every 24 months or after 500 measurements, according to the Driftcon agreement. The Driftcon software will notify you before the calibration expires. You can ignore the message and continue using the software and performing measurements, although the calibration date is always stored with the record of the measurement. Also an expiry indication will appear in the Driftcon report.


In case of problems with the Driftcon system you can refer to the Driftcon troubleshoot document, which contains some guidelines to solve your issue(s). Please always perform synchronisations frequently, so your databases are updated and check if you have the latest software version.
