Labcycler Basic

Labcycler Basic

The Labcycler Basic (011-103) is a thermal cycler designed for classical PCR. The Labcycler Basic IVD complies with the European Directive for in vitro diagnostics (011-106). Since 2005 Labcyclers are produced by SensoQuest and are in use. Take a look at references. The solid design with an aluminum front plate and a warranty of 5 years makes the system for all users interesting looking for quality. The system has a quick-block-changing system. With only one grip the scientist can put in a Thermoblock 48 (012-102), a Thermoblock 96 (012-103), a Thermoblock 384 (012-101), a Triple Block (012-104), or others. The TFT colored Touch Screen can be programmed in English, Spanish, or German at any time. The PCR-process is online tracked. The user interface is intuitive. The Labcycler has an electro-motoric heating lid. Maximal temperatures up to 110 °C at 120 Newton pressure are possible.  The ecologic development concept results in a low power consumption system. Only 350 watts are used at maximal power, and  low waste heat is produced by low noise. Nevertheless, the Labcycler can cool down at 4 °C for a very long period, e.g. over the weekend. The peak performance is demonstrated in cooling down to minus 5 °C. Instant incubation at the freezing point is possible. The low power consumption results in a low CO2 – emission which is positive for the balance of energy.

A Gradient upgrade is possible (011-801).

Ordering Information

The Labcycler Basic must be ordered in combination with one Thermoblock. Additionally, a second or more Thermoblocks can be ordered because the system has a quick-block-changing system. A Thermoblock can be changed in a few seconds. The Labcycler Gradient works at all global line voltages (85-265 V).
