This used Eppendorf Mastercycler 5333 was purchased from a biochemical/medical laboratory in the UK which had to close down. The PCR-cycler was in operation until closure of the laboratory. Thereafter, the instrument was transported to us, tested in our laboratory and found to be in good condition.
The offered used Eppendorf Mastercycler 5333 is an DNA Engine Thermal Cycler device for quantitative PCR applications, meeting all of the latest requirements with its outstanding speed and flexibility. The Mastercycler offers extremely fast temperature ramping, short detection times, and intuitive assay programming, which saves time to allow multiple accurate and reliable tests to be run per day.
The Eppendorf Mastercycler and Mastercycler gradient are PCR devices for all molecular biological and biochemical laboratories in the field of basic research or routine diagnostics. Temperature control is carried out with Peltier elements, which enable extremely rapid changes in temperature of up to 3 °C per second. This allows the temperature of the samples to be controlled extremely rapidly between 4 °C and 99 °C. A special “tube control” mode has been developed for temperature-controlling samples in various different tubes with various different filling volumes. The thermoblock has been constructed as a universal block which can accommodate microtiter plates in the 8 x 12 format, 96 Eppendorf PCR test tubes of 0.2 ml, 77 thin-walled Eppendorf PCR test tubes of 0.5 ml or other suitable tubes – without the block having to be exchanged.
