Thermal Cycles

  • TC-312

  • The TC-312 thermal cycles is unrivalled as a reliable, low cost Personal cycler. Designed with research and teaching laboratories in mind, the TC-312 offers the ultimate in low cost solutions where ease of use is high on the priority list.

    Small, low cost
    Of the world's best selling thermal cyces, the TC-312 is one of the smallest, lowest cost units on the market. It is available as a stand alone unit in 25 x 0.2ml or 20 x 0.5 ml microtube interchangeable block formats.

    Fast-track programming with free software upgrades
    With modern, intuitive programming and raed-to-go templates, creating even the most complicated protocols is simple. As new functionality is added to the software, updates can be downloaded free of charge from there website.

    Reliable, high performance
    Experience in thermal cycler manufacturing since 1987 ensures that the TC-312 provides both guaranteed performance and quality results, every time.

    Portable dual voltage
    This compact unit is not only light, but has a variable voltage selector (115/230V)

    Features

  • Unparalleled block uniformity: typically 0.1C at 50C ensuring optimal reproducibility.
  • Fast heating rate: Up to 3.6C / sec.
  • Small footprint: at only 561cm Squared, the TC-312 is even economical on space.
  • PC control & networking: TC-312 thermal cycles can be networking together with other Techne cyclers allowing up to 32 cycles to be connected to one PC.
  • Password protected: protect your program against unwanted modifications.
  • Heated lid: the selectable temperature range heated lid (100C to 115C) is sprung to fit both 1.2ml domed and 0.5ml flat top tubes and can be enabled or disabled.

    TC-412

  • The TC-412 thermal cycler, flexible on your protocols, easy on your budget. The TC-412 is a high perfomance, high sample throughput instrument at a highly affordable price.

    Versatile block format
    The truly user-friendly fully interchangeable block system allows blocks to be exchanged in a matter of seconds without the need for any tools (60 x 0.5ml, 96 x 0.2ml, 96 x 0.2ml for fully skirted plates, 384-well or flat plate for In-situ)

    Flexible heated lid
    Defined pressure, programmable heated lid (100C to 115C) to accommodate a varity of consumables.

    Intuitive programming
    4-line display with intuitive, simple-to-use software with alphanumeric programming, password protection, simple copy/edit functions and much more.

    8 peltiers
    Using on the innovative Quad Circuit Technolody of the TC-512, the TC-412 ensures unsurpassed control accuracy and temperature uniformity.

    Low cost
    The TC-412 is one of the most affordable full sized thermal cycler.

    PC networking
    The TC-412 can be connected to a PC along with other Techne cyclers for low or high throughput applications using Gensoft.

    TC-512

  • The TC-512 gradient thermal cycler enables you to optimise your experiements at the "touch of a screen" with the same mechanical features as the TC-412.

    Wide linear gradient
    The most linear gradient cycler on the market, with an amazing range of 30C. Protocols can be optimised in a single experiment.

    Touchscreen
    The TC-512 incorporates a large, 115 x 90mm, touch-sensitive screen that provides a unique user-friendly programming interface which is second to none.

    Graphical display
    The unique real-time graphical display shows the sample temperature profile while the program is running, including the upper and lower limits of the gradient. This pictorial, real-time representation means instant visualisation of your experiments status.The unique real-time graphical display shows the sample temperature profile while the program is running, including the upper and lower limits of the gradient.

    Features

  • Memory cards: SmartMedia memory cards provide an alternative to internal memory storage of your programs, offering security and flexibility.
  • Gradient calculator: The gradient calculator function displays the temperature of each column of tubes. This ensures replication of the experimental conditions.
  • Quad Circuit Technology: Each block consists of 8 peltier units, controlled by 4 independent temperature thermistors (control sensors) distributed evenly across the block. This ensures taht the TC-512 exhibits the most accurately controlled linear gradient available.
  • High performance: A maximum heating rate of 3C/sec and block unifromity of
    <0.3C. With or without agradient.... no compromise!
  • Versatile block format: The truely user-friendly interchangeable block system allows blocks to be changed in a matter of seconds without the need for any tools (60 x 0.5ml, 96 x 0.2mk, 96 x 0.2m for fully skirted plates, 384-well, or flat plate for in-situ block)
  • Proven track record: Having almost 20 years experience in thermal cycler design ensures that the Techne TC-512 encompasses reliability withall the specifications you could wish for. These include: PC control and networking, decremental/incremental time and remperature, and defined pressure programmable heated lid.
  • Intuitive programming: Easy to use software with free upgrades downloadable from the Techne website.
