Speed and enhanced optimisation functions like the 2D-Gradient make the Mastercycler X50 PCR cycler a suitable tool for research in molecular biology.
Block temperature control and regulation enable optimisation, while the adaptable user management and extensive documentation capabilities give peace of mind to laboratories working or conforming to set standards. A highly intuitive touch display, low noise levels, low power consumption and the versatile flexlid lid concept complete the product.
Up to 10 units can be combined, making the product suitable for high-throughput applications or labs with a high number of users running different assays. For users who require more flexibility or throughput, up to 50 units can be combined in a computer-controlled network.
Features include: a 2D-Gradient for PCR optimisation; a heating rate of up to 10°C/s; a wide selection of blocks, from a fast silver block to 384; the flexlid concept, with automatic height adjustment of the lid allowing the use of all types of consumables; and a small footprint.
Applications include fast PCR, PCR optimisation, standard PCR, incubation and cycle sequencing.

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) uses the ability of DNA polymerase (enzymes that create DNA molecules by assembling nucleotides, the building blocks of DNA. These enzymes are essential to DNA replication and usually work in pairs to create two ident...
Immunoassay - ELISA
Immunoassays are quick and accurate tests to detect specific molecules. Immunoassays rely on an antibody to bind to the specific structure of a molecule. Antibodies are proteins generated by animals in response to the invasion of a foreign molecule (anti...
