1. A fluorescence detection apparatus for analyzing samples located in a plurality of wells in a thermal cycler, the apparatus comprising:

  • a support structure attachable to the thermal cycler; and

    a detection module movably mountable on the support structure, the detection module including;

    an excitation light generator disposed within the detection module; and

    an emission light detector disposed within the detection module;

    wherein, when the support structure is attached to the thermal cycler and the detection module is mounted on the support structure, the detection module is movable so as to be positioned in optical communication with different ones of the plurality of wells.
