Innovation and Experience for the Best PCR Results

Essential for research – gradient function

For rapid success, it is essential to have suitable tools at hand. For polymerase chain reactions (PCR), optimization of the annealing temperatures is crucial when it comes to achieving accurate results. In the Biometra TOne and Biometra TAdvanced systems, a temperature gradient over the long side of the block is realized as linearly as possible through special block construction and precise electronics. Users only need to enter the desired temperature step size and the annealing temperature for the middle of the block.

  • Optimization of the PCR protocol for new primer pairs in one run
  • Optimal annealing temperatures lead to the best specificity and yield
  • Easy transfer of results thanks to largely linear temperature steps from column to column
  • Quality through design, innovation and experiences

Biometra thermal cyclers are designed so users can rely on their results. The data accuracy of these systems pairs exceedingly well with its easy to use design.

  • A sophisticated temperature control system without exceeding or falling below the target temperature ensures transparency and maximum experimental reproducibility in all block positions.
  • The High-Performance Smart Lid (HPSL) ensures uniform temperatures and no condensation in the cover/block space, regardless of the plastic materials used.
  • The extremely quiet operation allows for the use of a large number of cyclers in labs with office areas.
  • A broad range of PCR plastics can be used due to the universal block design and adjusting cover pressure.
  • Everybody finds the right thermocycler for themselves from the range of block materials and formats.
  • The instruments come with low space requirements thanks to an efficient air flow design
