The great value, high specification, environmentally friendly thermal cycler.
The LifeECO™ thermal cycler has all the functionality of the GeneTouch instrument with the exception that it has a fixed 96 well gradient block for use with 96 well PCR plates, 8-strip PCR tubes, 12-strip PCR tubes or 0.2ml individual PCR tubes. It has a slightly smaller LCD programming interface and display screen at 5.7 inches, but brings the benefit of a more affordable price tag.
The programming is identical for both instruments and programmes created on one instrument can be saved to a USB flash drive and transferred to the other machine.
With the exception of the interchangeable blocks, it has all the flexibility of the GeneTouch such as networking/PC/standalone operation, gradient function, adjustable hot-lid, tube or block temperature control modes, adjustable temperature
ramping and incremental/decremental time setting.
Performs long, nested and touchdown PCR with ease.
