If the desired result is not generated, the SmartCycler® and SmartCycler® II system may be recalibrated with the user-defined Optical Calibration feature in the SmartCycler®Software. Q: I created a FAM graph but it is displaying temperature. A: This is most likely due to the incorrect graph type.

A: When a new graph is defined in the Define Graphs screen it is saved and stored in the database but not associated with a r
