Prime gradient upgrade (Prime to PrimeG)

This full sized thermal cycler delivers both high performance and high throughput to provide maximum flexibility when processing a large number of samples in parallel.
A versatile, fully interchangeable block system allows exchange in a matter of seconds without the need of tools (60 x 0.5ml, 96 x 0.2ml, 96 skirted & non-skirted plates and 384 well plate formats available)
User friendly programming is achieved via a colour touchscreen and intuitive software that is standardised across the entire Techne® thermal cycler range. A USB port enables the transfer of programmes between instruments and temperature logs to your PC. A real time graphical display provides an instant visualisation of the program status.
Gradient cycling can be achieved directly using the PrimeG instrument or by upgrading the Prime unit via a USB software installation. This enables the laboratory to manage changing cycling requirements in a cost effective manner.
The Techne® Prime cycler range is one of the most affordable full sized thermal cyclers on the market and is backed up by a 4 year warranty.
