PCRmax Alpha Cycler 2

The system is coupled with an Andriod OS interface, and a mobile app which lets users scan a QR code that allows them to monitor their runs and access programs remotely. The platform also saves laboratory space as it condenses two independent blocks into one compact system, the company said.
