PCRMAX ALPHA CYCLER

ALPHA CYCLER

PCRmax Alpha Cyclers

With the option for either single, dual or four block instruments throughput and scale are never a concern. The Alpha Cycler 1, 2 and 4 run an HD Quad Core Android tablet interface with features aimed to enhance the user experience and build quality to become the workhorse of any lab.

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.

PCRmax Alpha Cyclers​

Alpha Cycler 1 PCRmax

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.

 
  • Remotely track the progress of runs
  • Send a health report for diagnosis by the technical support team
  • Be notified of any issues and potentially prevent system failures occuring.
  • Active Sample cooling – For sharper amplification and minimal non-specific amplification
  • Programme Wizard – Generate a protocol specific to your sequence, template source and amplicon length in seconds
  • Report generated on run conditions and state following completion of protocol
  • Gradient – Allowing for simplified temperature optimisation, no matter the block chosen
  • 96/384 well formats – Flexibility for any scale and user needs
  • USB connectivity – To retrieve system information and easily transfer protocols between systems
  • Android driven 7” tablet interface – Quad core speed and excellent connectivity and feel
