MJ Research PTC-200 thermal cyclers are equipped with interchangeable sample blocks and heat pump assemblies which allow users to easily change formats in between runs while maintaining NIST-traceable accuracy. Single control units of this model can also be supplied with different alpha modules and alpha blocks to increase functionality. Users can achieve thermal control with this instrument by using either a block-in sample probe or calculated methods. Block controls enhance compatibility with protocols while calculated sample temperature controls highly boost speed and accuracy.

Possible MJ Research PTC-200 Supplements

Alpha modules:

  • dual- independently controlled blocks
  • microplate format
  • slide adapter (for up to 16 slides)

Alpha blocks:

  • 96-well block
  • Dual 48-well block (to run two programs simultaneously)

This high performing MJ Research PTC-200 thermal cycler is easy to use independently or when accompanied by other instruments. A single cycler can be networked to control up to 15 separate instruments. Remote manipulation and monitoring of cyclers can be done through the use of a PC. In addition, PCs also allow for real time data export to video screens or databases.

The MJ Research PTC-200 DNA Engine thermal cycler’s large memory, dependable software and robust design ensure that tests produce accurate results and are hassle-free.
