The  Q-Cycler 96 is a high performance thermal cycler driven by the latest Peltier-based thermal engine. It can be used in stand-alone mode or controlled by a PC through the software supplied with the instrument. 

Data can be entered into the instrument through the 160 mm TFT colour touch screen or 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. Data pertaining to every experiment performed is recorded in a unique electronic GLP file to ensure full laboratory traceability and experimental validation.

Blocks for the Q-Cycler 96 are sold separately from the thermal cycler base unit and 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.
