G-STORM™ GS 482 THE CUTTING-EDGE THERMAL CYCLER SOLUTION
The G-STORM GS 482 THERMAL CYCLER is an ideal solution for scientists looking to maximize their research funds and invest in a cycler that offers real flexibility and functionality.
The two independent 48 well blocks both with sprung heated lids that adapt to both tubes and high profile 48 well plates within the GS 482 Thermal Cycler enables two programs to be run independently or one program simultaneously on both blocks. Either way the GS482 Thermal Cycler provides two block functionality at an incredible price point.
Both thermal blocks for the GS482 Thermal Cycler have 2 independent temperature control sensors and 4 peltier heating units ensuring that temperature control and uniformity across the block surface is accurate and reproducible time after time cycle after cycle. With the addition of Active Sample Cooling (ASC) ensuring that samples are cooled until the heated lid reaches its target temperature therefore reducing non-specific primer binding and extension the G-Storm 482 is protecting your samples even before your protocol has begun.
"The thermal cycler solution for cutting-edge molecular biologists."
GS482's "Home Page" is central to the control of the cycler's various functions. Select the various options including Wizard Program and Start on the touch-screen and let the software take you through a logical process that enables you to do what you want to do in easy simple to follow steps.
The superb "Program Wizard" function uses primer sequences or primer melting temperatures to calculate your protocol for you. By entering this information product length and any other "special"information over just five steps the wizard will present an ideal program based on this information within a few clicks you are ready to go!
