Alpha Cycler 4 (AC4396) Quad Block with 3 96 well block and 1 384 well blocks (gradient capable) BRAND NEW with 2 Year Manufacturer Warranty.
The Alpha Cycler 4 is a compact and richly feature driven advanced level PCR machine with extreme ease of use and incredible performance at its core. Alpha Cycler software has handy features such as recently used Programs- allowing users to quickly access their most commonly used protocols without the need to navigate through folders to find it, individual user logins; with protected protocols as-well-as allowing users’ access to temperature logs after each run to monitor the state of the system.
The Alpha Cycler systems also contain a novel Program wizard which allows users to define a protocol based specifically off their primer sequence and template source. Primer sequences or Tms are inputted, amplicon length and source defined and the on board algorithm generates an optimised protocol for your assay. Active Sample Cooling (ASC) is an approach which the Alpha Cycler takes to reduce non-specific amplification in your PCR reactions. Active sample cooling can all but stop the formation of primer dimers early in cycling. All Alpha Cycler Block formats, 96 or 384 well run gradients across the 12 or 16 columns respectively. Each blocks 6 individual heat sources (peltier elements) allow for much finer optimization of your temperatures and by extension enable more specific PCR product amplification. With the Alpha cycles gradient converter you can in one clik adjust the gradient step to the specific temperature of the column that gave the best results; No need to re-write the protocol – just convert the gradient to the optimized temperature.
