Description

The Q-Sat 24 from Hain Lifescience is a high performance thermal cycler system with a capacity for 24 x 0.2 mL individual tubes or three strips of 8 x 0.2 mL tubes. The unit is driven by the latest Peltier-based thermal engine and can be controlled by a PC (control software supplied with the instrument) or as part of a simple USB plug and play network of up to three satellite thermal cyclers controlled by the Q-Cycler 96 thermal cycler (please see below). The block is manufactured from anodized aluminium and includes two sensors.


Its small size enables it to fit onto even the most crowded bench to provide a dedicated thermal workstation for PCR, ligations, enzyme digests, probe denaturation, etc. A full thermal cycling protocol can be set up on screen in seconds. An intelligent program creation wizard will even automatically generate an optimized protocol from primer sequence, amplicon length and origin of the target sequence.

The Q-Sat 24 is capable of running even the most complex thermal cycling protocols employing time and temperature increments, hot starts and touchdown steps and its comprehensive run logs provide permanent peace of mind by providing the actual executed time and temperature of every temperature step.
