You will find Labnet's Multigene Mini to be lightweight and compact while still offering the same features as larger thermal cyclers. It is economical at half the price of devices that are full size, and it includes interchangeable 24 X 0.2 ml and 18 X 0.5ml blocks. It features fast ramping, with intuitive graphical programming at up to 5°C per second. This ramping combined with exceptional accuracy and uniformity ensure high-quality results. Cooling and heating of the block is controlled with an algorithm that determines sample temperature based on volume. Programmed temperatures are quickly reached by the samples so no overshoot or lagging occurs. Fast ramping rates as high as 5°C/second are provided by powerful Peltier units, and the Multigene Mini device is easy and intuitive to program. There are function keys, arrow keys, and a key pad on the control pad so navigation and entering parameters are easy.
