Mastercycler® Gradient & Personal Thermal Cyclers

By Eppendorf
Mastercycler® Gradient & Personal Thermal Cyclers

The Mastercycler® Gradient features a single block that accepts 96-well plates as well as 0.2 and 0.5mL PCR tubes. A programmable gradient function enables a temperature gradient of 1°C to 20°C to be generated across the block during all steps of a PCR reaction. Features a universal block for 96 x 0.2mL tubes, 77 x 0.5mLtubes, or one 8 x 12 microplate.

SteadySlope® Technology ensures constant heating and cooling rates, and it allows the results of gradient experiments to be transferred seamlessly to routine applications. Triple Circuit Technology provides an additional heating and cooling zone for precise temperature control of all gradient profiles.

The Mastercycler® Personal compact thermal cycler offers speed and precise block homogeneity, as well as excellent operational flexibility. Its universal block with a 25-well format can accommodate 25 x 0.2mL tubes, 16 x 0.5mL tubes, or microplates in a 5 x 5 grid format. Like the Mastercycler® and the Mastercycler® gradient, the Mastercycler® personal also has a temperature control range from 4°C to 99°C.

The entire Mastercycler® family incorporates the personal card system: chip-based memory cards that enable a simple and reliable transfer of your individual protocols between different Mastercycler® workstations and ensure unlimited memory expansion. All units are provided with heated lid and 1 personal card.

Features of both models:

  • Flexibility and simple programming: Gradient function, adjustable ramps, time and temperature increments, incubation mode, in situ mode, link function, pause function
  • RS-232 and printer interface
  • Autorestart option in the event of a power failure
  • Two-year warranty
