Thermal Cycler

The Thermal Cycler by Proto-tech features a motorized arm that moves specimens between a heated water bath and a refrigerated water bath. The motor speed is adjustable, and the dwell time and cycle limit are programmable through an LCD screen and a four button interface.

Top quality baths from Polyscience are paired with a stepper motor and driver from Applied Motion, and non-contact limit sensors  and a polymer-coated wire basket to build a trouble-free, reliable device for conditioning all of your specimens.
