The Techne Prime and PrimeG 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.
The PrimeG is a gradient enabled thermal cycler with all the features of the Prime unit. The wide linear gradient with a range of 29°C allows annealing temperatures to be optimised in one experiment.
The gradient calculator function displays the temperature for each of the 12 columns, ensuring easy replication of thermal conditions.
