Biorad iCycler Thermal Cycler
The Biorad iCycler is a 96-well gradient thermal cycler equipped to handle everyday demands of PCR applications with extremely reproducible quantitation and excellent uniformity. This thermal cycler features built-in PCR protocols and an easy-to-use interface. The iCycler’s gradient can accommodate 2ml and 5ml tubes, strips, and plates, allowing for increased cycling speed and greater throughput.
The Biorad iCycler can be used for clinical diagnostics, gene expression and amplification, and measuring viral loads and pathogen detection, among other applications.
