 Techne Personal Thermal Cycler - ³Prime

Techne ³Prime Thermal Cycler - Techne have completely upgraded their established thermal cyclers to become the most feature rich range of instruments on the market. The Prime range of thermal cyclers provide an unrivalled user experience because each unit, from the personal 3Prime right up to the full size PrimeG instrument feature a full colour touchscreen and intuitive user interface.

The Prime range of thermal cyclers are also designed to provide easy programming. Pre-installed templates allow the user to quickly create even the most complicated programmes via the intuitive touch interface. All Prime thermal cyclers have the ability to transfer programmes between instruments via USB or to your PC. The internal memory can hold 1000 programmes with unlimited storage available on USB data stick.

The Techne Prime range of thermal cyclers are among the most reliable thermal cyclers on the market, backed by a 4 year warranty, the best in the industry.

  • Colour touch interface for fast program setup
  • Small space-saving footprint
  • Block options; 24 x 0.2ml (compatible with 8 well microtube strips) and 18 x 0.5ml
  • Fast ramp rate of up to 3.0°C/sec
  • Data transfer via USB 
  • Backed by Techne's 4 year warranty

 Techne Mid-Sized Cyclers  ³PrimeX & ³PrimeG 

The Techne ³PrimeX delivers all the features of the ³Prime instrument but with an expanded sample capacity, accommodating 48 x 0.2ml microtubes, 30 x 0.5ml tubes plus half a 96 well plate in a horizontal format. Design flexibility allows the unit to be upgraded to included gradient cycling capability. The ³PrimeG is a small gradient thermal cycler that builds on all the features of the ³PrimeX instrument. The 48 well block format offers eight columns for annealing temperature optimisation and six rows for optimising reagents such as MgCl2 and primer concentrations. Annealing temperatures can be optimised over 14°C between temperatures 30°C to 80°C. The gradient calculator function displays the temperature for each of the eight columns, ensuring easy replication of thermal conditions.

 Techne Full Size Thermal Cyclers - Prime & Prime G

Full size thermal cycler delivers high performance, high throughput and maximum flexibility with an ability to upgrade base model to gradient capability with a simple unlock code, as well as the availability of a wide choice of thermal blocks:
User friendly programming is achieved via a colour touchscreen and intuitive software that is standardised across the entire Techne® thermal cycler range. A USB port enables the transfer of programmes between instruments and temperature logs to your PC. A real time graphical display provides an instant visualisation of the program status.
Gradient cycling can be achieved directly using the PrimeG instrument or by upgrading the Prime unit via a USB software installation. This enables the laboratory to manage changing cycling requirements in a cost effective manner.
The Techne® Prime cycler range is one of the most affordable full sized thermal cyclers on the market and is backed up by a 4 year warranty.

SKU# alpha1

The single block Alpha Cycler 1 (AC-1) is a compact and feature driven entry level PCR machine with ease of use and performance at its core.

The PCRmax Alpha cyclers are developed to deliver not only the best quality data you can expect from PCRmax but also to innovate and exceed the high standards expected by the community.

Alpha Cycler software has features such as recently used programmes; allowing users to quickly access their most commonly used protocols without the need to navigate through folders to find it, individual user logins; with protected protocols as-well-as allowing users’ access to temperature logs after each run to monitor the state of the system.

The Alpha Cycler systems also contain a novel programme wizard which allows users to define a protocol based specifically off their primer sequence and template source. Primer sequences or Tms are inputted, amplicon length and source defined and the on board algorithm generates an optimised protocol for your assay.

 

Alpha Track App: Track the progress of runs and health of your system remotely via your app.

The Alpha Track Application works in conjunctions with the Version 2 software on any Alpha Cycler to allow users to:
