Easily interchangeable 96-well thermal block cycler unit for the LightCycler® 480 Instrument.
The LightCycler® 480 Instrument is a versatile and customizable PCR device, allowing the use of additional thermal block cycler units (96-well and 384-well format) with the system. The LightCycler® 480 Block Kit 96 Silver comprises a thermal block cycler unit for 96-well PCR plates, a corresponding block lid for the 96-well PCR plates, and a storage box for both accessories. The user can quickly and easily exchange the thermal block cycler unit and block lid. The new thermal block cycler unit and block lid are automatically detected and calibrated by the LightCycler® 480 Instrument after the instrument is turned on. No additional time-consuming calibrations are necessary.
