S1000™ Thermal Cycler

The S1000 thermal cycler combines powerful performance with streamlined features. The cycler can be used as a stand-alone instrument for PCR, or it can be connected to a C1000 Touch™ thermal cycler for additional throughput. Up to three S1000 cyclers can be connected to a C1000 Touch cycler, and the four cyclers can then be conveniently controlled as one high-throughput instrument.

Features and Benefits

·        Flexible platform — choice of 4 interchangeable reaction modules; change throughput capability by linking up to 3 S1000 cyclers to a C1000 Touch cycler or adding PC control for up to 32 cyclers

·        Exceptional thermal performance — the patented* reduced-mass honeycomb sample block delivers fast ramping and settling times for reliable results and reduced run times

·        Optimal sealing — the fully adjustable heated lid accommodates a wide range of reaction vessels

·        Thermal gradient — quickly and easily identify optimal annealing temperatures by using the programmable temperature gradient

Applications and Uses

·        Amplification/PCR

·        Cloning

·        Cycle sequencing

·        Gene expression studies

·        Mutagenesis

The S1000 cycler can be used with four interchangeable reaction modules, including:

·        A gradient-enabled 96-well fast module

·        A gradient-enabled 96–deep well module

·        A gradient-enabled dual 48/48-well fast module that allows 2 independently controlled protocols to be run side by side in a single bay

·        A gradient-enabled 384-well module
