Description Back to Top
The MultiGene OptiMax Thermal Cycler delivers advanced speed and features and premium performance. This simple to program unit is compact in design and built to perform. Programming is intuitive with the large display and multiple pre-programmed templates supplied with unit. The OptiMax comes with standard built in 2-step, temperature optimization, easy to adjust touchdown and time increment protocols, and fast ramp rates.The MultiGene OptiMax employs a protocol optimization process improving on older gradient features. This Better than Gradient capability allows users to select up to 6 distinct annealing temperatures to be run simultaneously. This is ideal for method optimization as well as applications like genotyping.FlexTemp™ technology separates the 96 well plate into six (4 x 4) temperature regions that allow you to pick the temperatures you want to test against. These regions are easily identified by the blue and black squares visible on the microplate platen. Temperature of 6-segment blocks can be set independently within a 24°C range.The OptiMax's heated lid is fully adjustable to provide optimum pressure for use with a broad range of tubes and microplates. For optimum performance, the lid can also be programmed to hold different temperatures between 60° to 65°C and 100° to 115°C. The lid prevents condensation and slides away and back from the user to provide full access to samples and reduce the risk of coming in contact with a hot surface.Specifications:• Sample capacity: 1 x 96 well plate, 12 8 x 0.2 mL strip tubes, 96 x 0.2 mL tubes • Programmable temperature range: 4°C to 99.9°C • Temperature control: Calculated or block • Temperature accuracy/uniformity: +/-0.5°C/+/-0.5°C • Heating/cooling method: Peltier • Gradient temperature range: 30°C to 99°C• Program memory: 200 complete programs • Temp. increments/decrements: Yes • Time increments/decrements: Yes • User program folders: 50 sets • Password protected programs: Yes • Communication: USB and RS232 ports • Dimensions (W x D x H): 24 x 42 x 25 cm • Weight: 9 kg • Electrical: 120V, 50/60 Hz • 3 year warranty†U.S. and Canada Sales Only
