Price: $4,199.00
The new gradient cycler, the TC-3000G completes the Techne range of personal cyclers. The world’s smallest gradient cycler, the TC-3000G will hold half a 96-well plate, in a horizontal format so that it offers 8 columns for temperature optimization and 6 rows for optimizing reagents such as MgCl2 and primer concentrations. Annealing temperatures can be optimized over a 15°C gradient between the temperatures of 20 and 80°C.

All the features of the popular TC-3000 and TC-3000X plus...

Gradient: A gradient of up to 15oC between the temperatures of 20 and 80oC can be set, allowing any protocol to be optimised within a single experiment.

New Software: Enables a gradient to be added to any temperature step of the program.

Gradient Calculator: The gradient calculator function displays the temperature for each of the 8 columns, ensuring easy replication of thermal conditions.
