Thermal Gradient 

Optimize Reactions in a Single Run

Thermal gradient technology allows you to quickly optimize your PCR assays in a single run by simultaneously testing eight different temperatures across a range of up to 25°C. The optimal annealing temperature for a PCR assay maximizes yield while preventing the formation of nonspecific products. The dynamic ramping technology adjusts the cycler ramp rate, ensuring that the incubation times across the eight rows during a gradient step are identical.

Optimization of an assay results in better yields and specificity. Results show that assays A and B can be run at an annealing temperature of 57.9°C on the same plate. Higher temperatures result in a reduced yield in assay A while lower temperatures result in nonspecific products in assay B. M, markers.

The T100 thermal cycler offers a user-friendly interface with the reliability and performance that you expect from Bio-Rad. Thermal gradient technology makes it easy to optimize your reactions in a single run. The 96-well sample block and self-adjusting heated lid accommodate standard tubes, tube strips, and plates.
