Thermal cyclers are essential laboratory equipment for researchers who run polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for sequencing, cloning, genotyping, mutagenesis, and many other applications. Common features of Bio-Rad's thermal cyclers include Peltier effect technology for precise temperature control, and thermal gradient to easily optimize PCR assays in a single run. Instruments include the T100™, a great choice for routine PCR, and the flexible 1000-series, which offers multiple block formats for increased throughput capabilities, and a dual 48/48-well unit that allows two independent experiments to run simultaneously.
