The ³Prime personal cycler offers easy programming and instrument flexibililty, whilst maintaining the rapid ramp rates and small footprint that make it ideal for research and teaching laboratories. Using a colour touch screen and ready to go templates the user is intuitively guided to create even complicated programs, with a methodology that is standardised across the whole Techne® thermal cycler range.
- Colour touch screen for fast program set-up
- Fast ramp rate of up to 3,0 °C/s
- Temperature range +4 to 100 °C
- Gradient cycling is available directly using the ³PrimeG instrument or by upgrading the ³PrimeX unit
- Protocols and temperature logs transferred between instruments and PC via USB
The ³PrimeX mid-sized cyclers deliver all the features of the ³Prime instrument but with an expanded sample capacity, accommodating 48×0,2 ml microtubes or 30×0,5 ml tube. Gradient cycling can be achieved directly using the ³PrimeG instrument or by upgrading the ³PrimeX unit.
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 to 80 °C. The gradient calculator function displays the temperature for each of the eight columns, ensuring easy replication of thermal conditions.
Note: Exchange of thermal cycler blocks must be carried out by a trained service engineer. Please contact your local VWR office for details about replacement blocks available.
