Thermal Cycler Plus

ETC821D Thermal Cycler Plus is a Double-block model meticulously built on the basis of the classic ETC821 model. The instrument adopts a Double-block module design and can run two different PCR programs independently. It is especially suitable for small throughput such as teaching and scientific research PCR experiment.


gradeOne machine with multiple uses
Double-block module design can run different programs independently

Two 48-well*0.2ml modules can be set up separately to run programs, independently and in parallel, flexible to meet the various needs of users for PCR experiments.

gradeThe experiment is more secure
