Wide linear gradient:
The only Gradient Thermal Cycler on the market to offer quad circuit technology
which results in the most linear gradient on the market, with an amazing range of 30°C. Protocols can be optimized in a single experiment.
The TC-5000 incorporates a large, 115 x 90mm, touch-sensitive screen that provides a unique user-friendly programming interface which is second to none.
The unique ‘real-time’ graphical display shows the sample temperature profile while the program is running, including the upper and lower limits of the gradient. This pictorial, real-time representation means instant visualization of your experiment’s status.
gradient calculator function displays the temperature of each column. This ensures replication of the experimental conditions.
Proven Track Record:
Having more than 20 years experience in thermal cycler design ensures that the Techne TC-5000 encompasses reliability with all the specifications you could wish. These include: PC control and networking, decremental/incremental time and temperature, and defined pressure programmable heated lid.
Each block consists of 8 peltier units, controlled by 4 independent temperature thermistors (control sensors) distributed evenly across the block. This ensures that the TC-5000 exhibits the most accurately controlled linear gradient available*.
A maximum heating rate of 3°C/Sec and block uniformity of <±0.4°C. With or without a gradient......no co
Versatile block format:
The truly user-friendly interchangeable block system allows blocks to be interchanged in a matter of seconds without the need of any tools (60 x 0.5ml 96 x 0.2 ml, 3841 well, Insitu Block2).
Easy to use software with free upgrades downloadable from the Techne® website as new functionality is added. Click here to go to the Cycler Software update page for instructions and software download.
