The Mastercycler® nexus can accommodate 96-well PCR plates, 0.2mL PCR tubes, 0.2mL PCR tube strips and 0.5mL PCR tubes. This flexibility allows PCR users to select the consumables that best fit their assay. With less than 40 dB[a] noise emission, the nexus is whisper quiet as well as energy efficient.
Due to the flexlid concept, the cycler can deal with all types of PCR consumables, from low volume all the way up to 0.5mL PCR tubes. 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.
The gradient option of the Mastercycler pro 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 with the Control Panel and the CycleManager pro is easy and intuitive – so that novice users can get started quickly and safely.
