Faster and with enhanced features, the new GTC96S advanced thermal cycler delivers exceptional performance at an affordable price. An improved protocol optimisation process utilises Flexible Temperature technology to segregate the 96-well plate into six discrete (4×4-well) temperature zones, made easily distinguishable by blue and black squares.Temperature selection is no longer automated and is entirely in the hands of the operator over a 24°C advanced range, anywhere between 4 and 96°C. This enables the operator to optimise PCR by testing 6 different temperatures simultaneously in just one thermal cycler run. This is ideal for Genotyping work. With heating and cooling rates of 5°C/s and 3.5°C/s respectively, the precision temperature control of the GTC96S minimises temperature overshooting and undershooting between individual stages within each PCR cycle, resulting in faster run times and greater efficiency.Programming is both quick and simple through a large user-friendly interface, while pre-programmed methods for Optimisation, Touchdown and Time Increments make set-up obvious even to first time users. A heated lid, which is fully adjustable to apply optimal pressure to 0.2ml tubes and microplates, may be programmed to hold different temperatures between 60 and 65°C and 100 to 115°C. Additional advantages offered by the new heated lid are its slide-in slideout design for safe access to samples, and its prevention of condensation formation during overnight cooling.
