Benchmark's TC9639 Thermal Cycler has been designed to provide consistent, reliable results for laboratories with medium to high throughput. This thermal cycler is full of convenient features from its large, touch screen user interface to its unique multi-format block. It is easy to use, with intuitive programming and a library of preinstalled programs.
The large, full color touch screen is the user interface for the TC9639. Programming is simple and intuitive -- users can use one of the 10 standard protocols saved in the library, edit an existing program, or use the protocol wizard to guide them through writing a new one. Programs are shown graphically and edited by imply touching the step that needs to be changed. The programming also sallows for time and temperature increments to be built into programs as well as slower ramp rates. Programs can be stored in public folders, private folders, or on a flash drive. The cycler can also be set up with password protected user folders. The full virtual keyboard allows for alphanumeric naming of programs and folders.
While many cyclers accept both tubes and plates, the TC9639 has the flexibility to accept 96 x 0.2mL tubes, as 96-well plate, or 39 x 0.5mL tubes all in the same sample block. Additionally, the unit may be purchased with a 384-well sample blocks. An in-situ adapter is available for use with slides.
The TC9639 utilizes Peltier units to achieve fast heating and cooling of the sample block. Precise control of the Peltier elements is achieved by an algorithm that simulates sample temperature. The inner plate of the heated lid is fully adjustable to prevent evaporation and condensation of samples. The lid temperature can be programmed, and when the block temperature is below 35°, the lid automatically shuts off. After cycling is completed, the block can be programmed to sit at 4°C. Two year warranty.
