thermal gradient

The technology is used to regulate temperature across a PCR plate.

Axela and Hutman Diagnostics have announced an agreement that will deliver a microarray-based, sample-to-answer pathogen detection platform to market next year.

Eppendorf said today that it has licensed patents covering gradient technology for thermal cyclers to Peqlab Biotechnologie.

Eppendorf said today that it has licensed patents covering gradient technology for thermal cyclers to Agilent Technologies.

Eppendorf said today that it has licensed patents covering its thermal cycler gradient technology to Analytik Jena, which will use the technology in its thermal cyclers.

Thermal Gradient has been awarded US Patent No. 8,043,849, "Thermal cycling device."
Joel Grover is named as inventor on the patent.

The new instrument features temperature gradient technology and offers the flexibility of accommodating relatively large sample volumes without sacrificing cycling speed, the company said.

Under the separate agreements, Roche and Labnet may use Eppendorf's thermal gradient technology in their real-time thermal cyclers. Eppendorf also licensed electronic pipetting technology to Gilson under another agreement.
