With its futuristic design paired with known quality, the Eppendorf Mastercycler X40 leads your standard PCR into a new era. The performance of the reliable aluminum block provides excellent temperature homogeneity, while a 12-column gradient offers fast PCR optimization. Programs from older Mastercycler models can easily be imported. Use the program migration feature to transfer protocols from other cycler models so that you can start right away. All programming is done fast, intuitively, and comfortably via a chemical-resistant glass surface touchscreen and the well-established user interface.
The handle can be operated with one hand and the SafeLid automatically adapts to apply the perfect pressure on your samples for evaporation protection. No matter if you use 0.1mL, 0.2mL tubes and tube strips, or PCR plates — in fact, any type of PCR plate, including skirted, semi-skirted, and unskirted plates, can be used.
For monitoring and audit trails, you can connect the Mastercycler X40 directly to Visonize LabSuite and by connecting multiple Eppendorf Visionize onboard devices you can transform your lab into a digital lab.
