The ³PrimeG is a small gradient thermal cycler that builds on all the features of the ³PrimeX instrument. The 48 well block format offers eight columns for annealing temperature optimisation and six rows for optimising reagents such as MgCl2 and primer concentrations. Annealing temperatures can be optimised over 14°C between temperatures 30°C to 80°C. The gradient calculator function displays the temperature for each of the eight columns, ensuring easy replication of thermal conditions.
Additional Features to ³PrimeX
€¢ Gradient can be applied across a temperature range of 30°C to 80°C
