Multi-block cycler for high-quantity PCR

Performing high-throughput PCR can be a costly and resource intensive process. The Alpha Cycler 4 thermal cycler offers four totally independent blocks, allowing it to perform four totally independent runs simultaneously. In addition, the compact instrument’s high level of temperature control and accuracy allows it to process high-quality protocols and enhances the value of each PCR run while maximizing available laboratory space.

Configurable in any combination of 96 to 384 well formats across its four bays, the cycler provides a flexible platform for any sample scale and is well suited to high-throughput, standard throughput and multiple-user environments.

Advanced software features allow users to access their most commonly used protocols quickly without the need to navigate through folders. A novel program wizard generates protocols based specifically from users’ primer sequence and template source, while individual logins ensure the time-saving feature is available to multiple users and secures user protocols to their specific login should they wish. Greater connectivity and real-time monitoring with a hand-held reporting device (such as a smart phone or tablet) then enables users to track their process to ensure that data quality never suffers. Finally active sample cooling delivers sharper and minimal non-specific amplification. Bibby Scientific
