MultiCycler™ Multi-block Thermal Cycler


MultiCycler™ Multi-block Thermal Cycler

Designed for laboratories wanting flexibility in their applications, Benchmark’s MultiCycler™ Thermal Cyclers offer multiple, independent cycling blocks in a single unit.

  • Dual or triple block models are available, both offering extremely fast cycling profiles
  • Large touchscreen interfaces
  • Self-adjusting heated lids
  • Gradient capabilities
  • Easy-to-use program wizard.

All programming features are accessed from the large, 10” full-color touch screen. The screen can be angled towards the user when in use and then tucked away to save space. A program wizard guides users through the simple protocol setup process. Advanced programming features include gradient, adjustable ramp rates, and time increments and decrements. For multi-user labs, password protection prevents interference with an existing run. A USB provides for unlimited program storage and easy transfer of protocols between MultiCycler™ machines.

The auto-adjusting heated lid prevents condensation and evaporation of samples. Lid temperature can be programmed, and when the block temperature is below 35°C, the lid automatically shuts off. Peltier units allow for exceptionally fast heating and cooling of the blocks. Temperature change is precisely and accurately controlled within tight tolerances by a proprietary algorithm that simulates sample temperature, resulting in fast runs and reproducible results.

The wells are arranged in a 4×8 and 6×8 format, allowing for the use of PCR strip tubes in both models. Each block is independently controlled.
