Featuring top quality and detailed precision, Biometra thermal cyclers make your lab workday easier and ensure excellent results.
The PCR standard for your laboratory
The robust ans easy-to-control thermal cycler is well suited for the most common applications: 96 well with optional 12 column gradient function. Fast pinpoint results can be gained, thanks to a high heating rate of 4 °C/s. Technical sheet
State-of-the-art PCR technology
The flexible high-quality thermal cycler with the block quick-change system and 12 different block modules, blocks for 0.2 ml, 0.5 ml tubes/plates and 384 well plates. High heating rates of up to 6°C/s in aluminum blocks and up to 8°C/s in silver blocks can be achieved due to optimal temperature control. An extended user management offers individual user rights for up to 90 users.
Three PCR devices in one
The Biometra TRIO is a unique PCR system that provides you with maximum flexibility, in which three different PCR protocols can run simultaneously.
Highly accurate block control and heating rates up to 5°C/s lead to highly specific and fast results. You can use the three sample blocks for 0.2 ml or 0.5 ml tubes/plates to amplify or incubate a large number of samples at the same time. Laboratories that often use new protocols benefit from this versatility.The professional user management is perfect for laboratories with a large number of users.
The Biometra TAdvanced is the high-performance thermal cycler for DNA amplification by PCR.
The Biometra TRIO is a triple powered thermal cycler for PCR providing three independent sample blocks which can run three different PCR reactions in parallel.
In addition to simple programming directly on the device, Biometra thermal cyclers can be accessed through a network via smartphone or tablet. The PCR Control App also allows for the control and monitoring of devices outside of the laboratory, opening up completely new possibilities.
In addition to the typical main application, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), the Biometra TRobot II is also suitable for all other molecular biological or chemical incubations in PCR plates. For example, the generation of libraries for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is an important step in a larger workflow where the automated thermal cycler can be used. This reduces the manual effort and the possibility of errors. The PCR cycler has outstanding heating and cooling rates and excellent temperature homogeneity across the sample block for highly reproducible PCR results. For the setup of new protocols or for the transfer of existing protocols from other thermal cyclers it is sometimes necessary to make slight optimizations to the protocols. For this purpose the Biometra TRobot II includes a gradient function. With this function it is possible, to test different temperatures in the critical annealing step of the PCR in one run.
In automated systems, compact components with the smallest possible footprint are particularly important. The Biometra TRobot II meets this requirement through its modular design with a compact PCR module that is placed directly on the automation deck, while the controller can be stored underneath the platform. Another important point in automation is that all components should be very robust and reliable. If one component fails, the entire workflow comes to a halt. With this background, we have developed a special, patent-pending mechanism for opening and closing the lid of the Biometra TRobot II, which is intended for permanent use. At the same time, the block design was designed to enable the gripper to access the sample block from three sides. This opens up many possibilities for positioning the thermal cycler on the deck.
A conveniently prepared library allows a fast integration into automation systems. In addition, powerful computer software, the Biometra TSuite, is available for direct control of the automated thermal cycler, which is helpful for first PCR runs in preparation for the actual application.
Maximum user safety is ensured with a unique, touch-sensitive safety frame which immediately stops the lid closing in case of contact with a resistance. The smooth block surface without gaps is essential for easy and effective cleaning and decontamination. For stress-free work it is also important to keep the noise level low.
The ventilation system has been designed to remain very quiet, even at high performance levels. This allows you to work next to Biometra TRobot II concentrated!
