Provides instrument users with even more flexibility.

Techne has introduced a new Combi-Block for its widely used Prime Thermal Cycler range, providing instrument users with even more flexibility.

The new Combi-Block has a total capacity of 66 tubes, either 33 x 0.2 ml or 33 x 0.5 ml volume. There is an optional 25°C temperature gradient spread over the 11 columns.

Multi-user laboratories and core facilities have a range of cycling requirements, and the use of different sized wells means a selection of consumables can be accommodated in the same instrument.

Techne Prime Thermal Cyclers are suitable for a range of PCR applications, with the new Combi-Block adding to the existing 96-well (0.2 ml), 60-well (0.5 ml) and 384-well block options.

Prime Thermal Cyclers can be purchased with or without a temperature gradient, with the option to upgrade later using a simple unlock code. The instruments are supported by Techne’s market leading 4 year warranty.

Jim Bratherton, Techne Product Manager at Bibby Scientific commented “There is very little else available in the market to rival the flexibility offered by the new Prime Combi-Block thermal cyclers. They feature the flexibility to use any 0.2ml and 0.5ml PCR tubes with no modification required to hardware or programmes. Temperature gradient capability for primer annealing experiments is available as standard on 5PRIMEG/C models or as an optional upgrade on 5PRIME/C base models. The Prime Combi-Block maintains the same ramp rate and temperature uniformity as the standard thermal blocks.”
