For technical specification comparison please see Thermal cyclers, Techne The TC-512 gradient thermal cycler enables you to optimise your experiments at the “touch of a screen”, with the same mechanical features as the TC-412.
  • Wide linear gradient The most linear gradient cycler on the market*, with an amazing range of 30°C1. Protocols can be optimised in a single experiment.
  • Touchscreen The TC-512 incorporates a large, 115 x 90mm, touch-sensitive screen that provides a unique user-friendly programming interface which is second to none.
  • Graphical display The ‘real-time’ graphical display shows the sample temperature profile while the program is running, including the upper and lower limits of the gradient. This pictorial, real-time representation means instant visualisation of your experiment’s status.
  • Memory cards: SmartMedia memory cards provide an alternative to internal memory storage of your programs, offering security and flexibility.
  • Gradient calculator: The gradient calculator function displays the temperature of each column of tubes. This ensures replication of the experimental conditions.
  • Quad Circuit Technology: Each block consists of 8 peltier units, controlled by 4 independent temperature thermistors (control sensors) distributed evenly across the block. This ensures that the TC-512 exhibits the most accurately controlled linear gradient available*.
  • High performance: A maximum heating rate of 3°C/Sec and block uniformity of <±0.3°C. With or without a gradient……no compromise!
  • Versatile block format: The truly user-friendly interchangeable block system allows blocks to be changed in a matter of seconds without the need for any tools
  • PC control and networking, decremental/incremental time and temperature, and defined pressure programmable heated lid.
  • Intuitive programming: Easy to use software with free upgrades downloadable from the Techne website: www.techne.com
