Bio-Rad DNA Engine Tetrad 2 Peltier Thermal Cycler with (4 x 96 Well Alpha Blocks)

Manufacturer: Bio-Rad Model: Tetrad 2 Condition: Used Warranty: 30 day Test Performed: Listing ID# 14806

Bio-Rad DNA Engine Tetrad 2 Peltier Thermal Cycler with (4 x 96 Well Alpha Blocks)

The four-bay Bio-Rad DNA Engine Tetrad 2 Thermal Cycler is a redesigned and updated version of the original DNA Engine Tetrad chassis, which was instrumental to the Human Genome Project. It delivers the same precise thermal performance as the DNA Engine Dyad cycler and original Tetrad thermal cyclers, allowing easy transport of protocols across platforms.

System Includes:
  • Bio-Rad DNA Engine Tetrad 2 Peltier Thermal Cycler
  • (4) 96- Well Alpha Blocks
  • Power cords

The DNA Engine Tetrad 2 cycler contains an onboard Pentium-class computer that delivers an advanced graphical interface – ideal for managing production-grade thermal cycling. Protocols can be created and edited rapidly and easily via the mouse-directed point-and-click navigation. Real-time displays of block, sample, and lid temperatures provide quality assurance that the thermal cycler is performing as directed. Software features – such as error tracking logs, run tracking files, problem resolution trees, and file management tools – offer valuable information for troubleshooting during high-throughput runs.

The Bio-Rad DNA Engine Tetrad 2 Thermal Cycler offers multi-block thermal cycling in a thermal range of 0–105˚C with an accuracy of ±0.3˚C. The Bio Rad DNA Engine Tetrad 2 reaches a ramping speed of up to 3˚C/sec with a memory of 1,000 programs.
