PCRmax Alpha Cycler 4
PCRmax, a Bibby Scientific company, has launched the Alpha Cycler 4. According to the company, it is the only commercially available thermal cycler to offer four totally independent blocks. As such, it is capable of performing four independent runs simultaneously in a compact instrument footprint. The system is also configurable in any combination of 96- to 384-well formats across the four bays. Other features include a software program that allows users to quickly access their most commonly used protocols, and greater connectivity and real-time monitoring capabilities using hand-held reporting devices such as a smartphone or tablet.
