PCR System with Interchangeable Blocks

As easy as it is flexible

Flexibility is a core element of the GeneTouch PCR system. Offering not less than five different styles of interchangeable blocks, the GeneTouch chassis and block design provides you with plenty of options. There's the stalwart 96-well block with a programmable thermal gradient for optimizing annealing or denaturing temperatures. The most popular block, the dual 48/48, is capable of holding up to 48 0.2 ml tubes on either side, with each side acting as its own – independent – thermal cycler. And don't forget the high throughput 384-well block, the 4-slide in situ block, and the 30/48 combi-block (for 0.5 ml and 0.2 ml tubes). And now with an upgraded touchscreen interface and simple programming, the GeneTouch system is as easy to use as 1-2-3.

 

Designed for today (and years to come)

Manufactured by one of the largest thermal cycler companies in the world, all Bioer PCR systems are powered by top-of-the-line thermoelectrics – from the world’s number one supplier of these heat pumps. Already, with nearly 10,000 units shipped since 2005, and a reliability rate in excess of 95%, you can trust in Bioer’s well-tested design principles. We do! Because in our hands these thermal cyclers break at lower than a 2% rate. And to prove our confidence, every system comes with an industry-leading FIVE year standard warranty which includes labor and parts. We also offer a free loaner system if it will take us more than 5 days to repair your unit. There’s no reason for you to worry about your thermal cycler anymore!

Big ticket performance

We invite you to carefully read the specifications of any Bioer cycling system and compare these to “name brand” machines for which you might be paying almost twice as much. Pay particular attention to the important specifications regarding thermal uniformity, thermal accuracy and thermal ramp rate – the guiding parameters for fast and repeatable PCR results. We think you'll agree – Bioer cyclers deliver the best value on the market.

 

It ain’t rocket science any more

PCR was once considered an art. But over the past 25 years PCR has become one of the best characterized bio-enzymatic processes. To this end, we ask you this simple question: Why pay prices that don't reflect this fact? Each of Bulldog Bio’s PCR products are priced fairly and promise satisfying results. It’s that simple.
