Key Features:
  • Advanced thermal cycler with integrated TAS validation and calibration system to monitor instrument thermal performance
  • TAS calibration probes accurate to ±0.1oC
  • Calibration data can be stored in the thermal cycler to create an historical record of cycler performance. A record can also be printed.
  • Unit can be operated in stand-alone mode, controlled from an external PC through the thermal cycler control software included with the instrument, or integrated into a network with up to three satellite thermal cyclers that are controlled through the Q-Cycler 96 Plus
  • 6.4 inch TFT colour touch screen
  • Choice of two user-interchangeable blocks (please see below). A standard block for 96 x 0.2 mL tubes or 96 well PCR plates is included with the purchase of the thermal cycler.
  • Internal auto validation prior to each program start and thermal engine validation function

Q Cycler 96 Plus

The Q-Cycler 96 Plus is a state-of-the-art thermal cycler that integrates the Hain Lifescience Q-Cycler 96 with an advanced validation and calibration system that allows an end-user to regularly monitor the thermal performance of their instrument. The new system combines a TAS probe head that holds eight UKAS-traceable probes that are accurate to ±0.1oC with proprietary software. Once the probe head is in place and the cycler lid is closed the software begins the self-validation process. Validations can be stored in the thermal cycler to create an historical record of thermal performance or the data can be sent to a printer.

The unit is driven by the latest Peltier-based thermal engine and can be used in stand-alone mode, controlled by a PC through the software supplied with the instrument, or as part of a simple USB plug and play network in combination with up to three satellite thermal cyclers. These satellite cyclers can be any combination of 24, 48 or 96 well block systems that are controlled by the Q-Cycler 96 Plus and each unit can be programmed to run its own individual protocol.

Data can be entered into the instrument through the 6.4 inch TFT colour touch screen or also through an external keyboard and mouse or from a bar code scanner. Actual and set block temperatures are shown on the graphical display in real-time along with data from the unit's sensors.

Blocks for the Q-Cycler 96 Plus are manufactured from anodized aluminium or gold-coated silver. Each block contains four sensors and can be installed or interchanged within seconds with no requirement for any calibration or any skilled training on the part of the operator. Lid pressure can be adjusted to give high or low pressure depending upon whether microplates or tubes are being used.
