Fast, reliable cycling and ease of use make the Benchmark thermal cyclers the ideal choice for medium to high throughput laboratories as well as teaching facilities or those looking for a personal sized cycler.
Both the full-sized TC-9639 and mini TC-32 feature large, full color touchscreens with icon driven menus. A program wizard guides users through quick and easy entry of protocols with on board storage for over 100 typical programs
The unique format of the block in the TC-9639 accepts 0.2ml tubes, strips and PCR plates as well as 0.5ml tubes. Wells in the block of the TC-32 are arranged in a 4x8 format compatible with 0.2ml tubes or strips. The blocks have a low thermal mass, allowing for exceptionally fast heating and cooling. This process is tightly controlled to maintain precision, accuracy, and uniformity both in the block and the samples. Heated lids maintain reactant concentrations. The height of the heated platen in the lid of the TC-9639 can be adjusted to fit snugly against the tops of tubes and plates.
While the TC-32 has a smaller footprint and lower capacity than the TC-9639, it still maintains all of the same programming features including time and temperature increments/decrements, auto pause, auto restart after a power failure and the ability of maintain samples at 4°C after a run.
