Model TC-5000 - Gradient Thermal Cyclers
From Cell Biology
The Techne Gradient Thermal Cyclers TC-5000 are ideal for a large number of parallel samples, TC-5000 gradient thermal cyclers feature a fully-interchangeable block system, allowing blocks to be exchanged in a matter of seconds without the need for any tools. Available block formats include 60 - 0.5 mL tubes, 96 - 0.2 mL tubes, 384 well, and in-situ. The gradient calculator function displays the temperature of each column of tubes, ensuring replication of the experimental conditions.
The defined-pressure, programmable heated lid accommodates a variety of consumables. The lid has a selectable temperature range of 100° C to 115° C and only activates if the block is set above 35°C. Lid also features an over-temperature cut-out.
The ‘real-time’ graphical display shows the sample temperature profile while the program is running, including the upper and lower limits of the gradient, allowing for instant visualization of experiment status. The unique user-friendly alphanumeric programming interface is displayed on a 4.5 x 3.5” touch-sensitive screen.
