Analytik Jena's TAdvanced Thermal Cycler

Analytik Jena has launched the TAdvanced thermal cycler with silver block. The thermal cycler features ramping rates of up to 8 °C/s, while its silver block provides excellent heat conductivity, enabling fast equilibration to temperature transitions and energy transfer into samples, the company said. This high heat conductivity also leads to a temperature uniformity of ±0.15 °C at 55 °C, the company added.
