"Tercyc" Multi-block Thermocycler
The four-block thermocycler Tercyc is designed to perform the incubation of polymerase chain reaction mixes in 0.5-ml test tubes. The device is designed as a single module comprising 4 independently controlled thermoblocks.
Each thermoblock can hold up to 10 test tubes with the volume of the reaction mix ranging from 10 to 50 ul; The device supports three methods of regulating the temperature of a reaction mix: Passive (based on the temperature of the unit); Two active methods (a mathematical model): Fast; Precise; The LCD display allows for programs to be entered and for thermocycling to be controlled and operated without the need for a regular PC; The device can work with any IBM compatible PC; Low variation of temperature within a thermoblock; Noiseless operation. The quality of the reaction is improved significantly due to more accurate conditions for primer annealing, ensuring high activity of the Taq DNA polymerase and reducing the accumulation of non-specific amplification products.
Availability of multiple block makes possible to:
- Simultaneously perform several assays for integrated tests;
- Have several users operating the device at the same time;
- Expedite the optimization of new reaction conditions;
- Treat up to 40 samples using the same program regimen during large-scale tests.
