Simplified Workflow - Improved Throughput
The MaxyGene™ II Thermal Cycler is extremely simple to program, compact in design and built to perform. The thermal cycler makes method optimization affordable and provides consistent, reliable results. It also features Precision Thermal Control, rapid heating and cooling of the precision-machined sample block by six independently temperature controlled Peltier modules. A sophisticated algorithm program calculates sample temperature and triggers heating and cooling accordingly, minimizing over- and under-shooting. The MaxyGene™ II Thermal Cycler may be programmed to operate between one and six different annealing temperatures across the block. The thermal cycler provides improved throughput by reducing time and simplifies workflow by reducing steps.
A variety of applications - from single temperature soaks to sophisticated multistep programs can be performed with the MaxyGene™ II. All of these are easily set up. The time or temperature of a cycling step can be automatically increased or decreased during successive cycles. This is useful for "touchdown" applications and for extending annealing times as enzyme is depleted. Programs may also be paused while running. During operation, actual times and temperatures are displayed. Estimated run times are automatically calculated and a log of the last run can be displayed or downloaded to a printer or PC.
