Techne PCR & Thermal Cyclers
Techne ³Prime Thermal Cycler
³Prime Thermal Cycler
Techne have completely upgraded their established thermal cyclers to become the most feature rich range of instruments on the market. The Prime range of thermal cyclers provide an unrivalled user experience because each unit, from the personal 3Prime right up to the full size PrimeG instrument feature a full colour touchscreen and intuitive user interface.
The Prime range of thermal cyclers are also designed to provide easy programming. Pre-installed templates allow the user to quickly create even the most complicated programmes via the intuitive touch interface. All Prime thermal cyclers have the ability to transfer programmes between instruments via USB or to your PC. The internal memory can hold 1000 programmes with unlimited storage available on USB data stick.
The Techne Prime range of thermal cyclers are among the most reliable thermal cyclers on the market, backed by a 4 year warranty, the best in the industry.
- Colour touch interface for fast program setup
- Small space-saving footprint
- Block options; 24 x 0.2ml (compatible with 8 well microtube strips) and 18 x 0.5ml
- Fast ramp rate of up to 3.0°C/sec
- Data transfer via USB
- Backed by Techne's 4 year warranty
Techne Mid-Sized Cyclers - ³PrimeX & ³PrimeG
The ³PrimeX delivers all the features of the ³Prime instrument but with an expanded sample capacity, accommodating 48 x 0.2ml microtubes, 30 x 0.5ml tubes plus half a 96 well plate in a horizontal format. Design flexibility allows the unit to be upgraded to included gradient cycling capability. The ³PrimeG is a small gradient thermal cycler that builds on all the features of the ³PrimeX instrument. The 48 well block format offers eight columns for annealing temperature optimisation and six rows for optimising reagents such as MgCl2 and primer concentrations. Annealing temperatures can be optimised over 14°C between temperatures 30°C to 80°C. The gradient calculator function displays the temperature for each of the eight columns, ensuring easy replication of thermal conditions.
Techne Prime Thermal Cyclers
This full sized thermal cycler delivers both high performance and high throughput to provide maximum flexibility when processing a large number of samples in parallel.
A versatile, fully interchangeable block system allows exchange in a matter of seconds without the need of tools (60 x 0.5ml, 96 x 0.2ml, 96 skirted & non-skirted plates and 384 well plate formats available)
User friendly programming is achieved via a colour touchscreen and intuitive software that is standardised across the entire Techne® thermal cycler range. A USB port enables the transfer of programmes between instruments and temperature logs to your PC. A real time graphical display provides an instant visualisation of the program status.
Gradient cycling can be achieved directly using the PrimeG instrument or by upgrading the Prime unit via a USB software installation. This enables the laboratory to manage changing cycling requirements in a cost effective manner.
The Techne® Prime cycler range is one of the most affordable full sized thermal cyclers on the market and is backed up by a 4 year warranty.
Techne Prime Elite Thermal Cyclers
Prime Elite is the new high-performance networkable thermal cycler, equipped as standard with all the latest features including large colour touchscreen, fast ramping, innovative front-loading PCR plate drawer, automatic non-motorised heated lid, TERS thermal energy recovery system and a unique space-saving, stackable design. Prime Elite and Prime Elite Satellites can be combined to form a two, three or four block instrument with Satellites controllable from the Prime Elite or a PC. Gradient blocks and 4 year warranty are included as standard.
Eppendorf PCR & Thermal Cyclers
Eppendorf Mastercycler Nexus
In the age of networking, the new Mastercycler nexus is your reliable companion when it comes to the daily routine of PCR. It is easy to use, does not need much space or energy and sends you an e-mail when it is done – what else do you need from a PCR cycler?
Combine up to 3 units for ultimate throughput!
Connect your Mastercycler nexus to your computer network and get a status e-mail to your desk!
Control all the relevant parameters of your PCR through the intuitive software
Affordable, flexible and reliable PCR instrument. Reliability and ease of Low energy consumption, easy expansion to 3 units and a small footprint make it not only fit to your budget, but also to your precious lab space.
Due to the flexlid concept, the cycler can deal with all types of PCR consumables, from low volume all the way up to 0.5 mL PCR tubes. Of course, all common PCR plates fit – and if your throughput becomes even higher, you can just connect one or two Mastercycler nexus eco to your Mastercycler nexus.
Gradient with SteadySlope Technology
The gradient option of the Mastercycler nexus features the SteadySlope technology to ensure that the heating and cooling ramp rates are identical in both gradient and normal operation. Thus, you can expect identical temperature control characteristics in both optimization and routine experiments. Programming the gradient is easy and intuitive – so that novice users can get started quickly and safely.
A true gradient with 12 different temperatures is an extremely powerful tool that can help you to optimize your PCR.
Eppendorf Mastercycler Personal
The Mastercycler personal is a high-quality, compact thermal cycler. In addition to its speed and precise block homogeneity, the "baby" of the Mastercycler family offers first-rate operational flexibility. Its universal block with a 25-well format can accommodate 25 x 0.2 ml tubes, 16 x 0.5 ml tubes or microtiter plates in a 5 x 5 grid format. With the aid of the personal card system, protocols can be exchanged with the two 96-format Mastercyclers. And just like these two cyclers, the Mastercycler personal also has a temperature-control range from 4°C to 99°C. With its ultra-modern technology, the Mastercycler personal shows the same quality standards you've come to expect from Eppendorf.
Eppendorf Mastercycler Pro
The vapo.protect ™ technology* reduces evaporation to a minimum. The extremely high heating and cooling rates of the Mastercycler pro S give you the speed you need.
- choose from three block formats
- operate the Mastercycler pro in three different configurations
- use any plate, tube or strip you want
