The offered used Thermal Cycler, MJ Research PTC-100 is a precise Peltier-heated thermocycler made for quick and repeatable PCR cycling. It will meet your needs for a reliable, easy-to-use, programmable thermal cycler. Thermal gradient technology makes it easy to optimize your reactions in a single run. The 96-well sample block and self-adjusting heated lid accommodate standard tubes, tube strips, and plates. The Thermal Cycler, PTC-100 features fast ramping speeds with heated lid feature offering an affordable option for end users looking for a PCR solution.
The Precise Peltier-effect heat pumps of our used thermal cycler, MJ Research PTC-100, were crafted to withstand repeated cycling. Any temperature sequence can be cycled up to 10,000 times. The NIST-traceable calibration feature of this instrument allows for the indefinite storing of material at any temperature. As a result, incubation rates are highly accurate.
The Hot Bonnet heated lid maintains the air in the upper part of sample vessels at a higher temperature than the reaction mixture. This prevents condensation, refluxing, and changes in reactant concentrations. The Hot bonnet also exerts pressure on the tops of vessels loaded into the block, helping to maintain a vapor-tight seal and to firmly seat tubes or the plate in the block. The Hot Bonnet heated lid adjusts to different sizes of reaction vessels (including microplates) for tight sealing during oil-free thermal cycling by turning the thumbwheel.
