Do you REALLY know what your thermal cycler is doing with your critical PCR samples?

Do you REALLY know what your thermal cycler is doing with your critical PCR samples?

It's a simple question but do you? One of the critical issues associated with thermal cycler use is the heating performance of the cycler's thermal block. Any deviations from the temperatures set in the PCR protocol, or inconsistencies across the thermal block, will negatively impact the reliability of the amplification process which can subsequently affect the quality and purity of the synthesised nucleic acid and any data generated using that product.

Advance Scientific has a solution that offers peace of mind

TAS thermal cycler diagnostic and validation system

The TAS thermal cycler validation system provides powerful diagnostic tools which enable a user to analyse every aspect of their thermal cycler's performance. Temperature profiles are collected and displayed by the TAS data acquisition and analysis software simultaneously and in real-time from the highly sensitive temperature probes located in the probe plate. 

These recordings provide information on thermal block accuracy and temperature uniformity, gradient operation, ramp rates, and performance at set temperatures as the thermal cycler performs a standard or gradient protocol.

More information on the TAS thermal cycler diagnostic and validation system can be found on our website.
