Essential for research – gradient function

For rapid success, it is essential to have suitable tools at hand. For polymerase chain reactions (PCR), optimization of the annealing temperatures is crucial when it comes to achieving accurate results. Depending on the device type, the Biometra thermal cyclers offer a Linear Gradient Function or a Temperature Optimization Step function (TOS) for this purpose. In the Biometra TOne and Biometra TAdvanced systems, a temperature gradient over the long side of the block is realized as linearly as possible through special block construction and precise electronics. Users only need to enter the desired temperature step size and the annealing temperature for the middle of the block. In the Biometra TRIO three-block device, the TOS function rapidly sets three different annealing temperatures in the three blocks. The programs are started simultaneously. Therefore, optimal amplification conditions can be found quickly during a PCR run.

  • Optimization of the PCR protocol for new primer pairs in one run
  • Optimal annealing temperatures lead to the best specificity and yield
  • Easy transfer of results thanks to largely linear temperature steps from column to column

Quality through design, innovation and experiences

Biometra thermal cyclers are designed so users can rely on their results. The data accuracy of these systems pairs exceedingly well with its easy to use design.

  • Sophisticated temperature control system without exceeding or falling below the target temperature ensures transparency and maximum experimental reproducibility in all block positions
  • The High-Performance Smart Lid (HPSL) ensures uniform temperatures and no condensation in the cover/block space, regardless of the plastic materials used
  • The extremely quiet operation allows for the use of a large number of cyclers in labs with office areas
  • Broad and versatile for sample vessels due to the universal block design and adjusting cover pressure
  • Well designed selection of equipment for every need, with a broad range of block materials and formats
  • Low space requirements thanks to an efficient air flow design
