Thermal Cycler

96-well PCR Instrument with a Gradient

It’s simple – Affordable gradient PCR

A thermal gradient of up to 30°C can be precisely generated so that the temperature of each well is repeatable cycle-to-cycle. Sporting a fully adjustable heated lid, the LifeECO is compatible with a wide range of 0.2 ml PCR tubes (standard and low profile) and 96-well PCR microplates (fully-, semi-, and non-skirted). And now with a gorgeous touchscreen interface and simple programming, this system is as easy to use as 1-2-3. Small and robust, the LifeECO can carve out a niche in any lab environment by providing years of reliable amplification!


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, 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.
