Prime Elite Thermal Cyclers (Techne/Bibby Scientific)

Prime Elite is the new high-performance networkable thermal cycler from Techne. They are equipped as standard with all the latest features including a large colour touchscreen, fast ramp rates, an innovative front-loading PCR plate drawer, automatic non-motorised heated lid, TERS thermal energy recovery system and a unique space-saving, stackable design. Prime Elite and Prime Elite Satellites can be combined to form a two, three or four instrument multi-block format with the Satellites controllable from either a PC or the Prime Elite. Gradient blocks and 4 year warranty are included as standard.

Clever Communications

The Prime Elite thermal cycler connects to 3 satellites via rear facing USB ports. Alternatively, Prime Elite Satellites can be controlled independently via a PC. Cables and software are provided as standard. Prime Elite also contains a front-facing USB port which allows easy program transfer between instruments or via a PC. At least 1000 programs can be stored on each Prime Elite with unlimited storage on USB sticks, ideal for multi-user laboratories. The Prime Elite USB ports also allow free software updates, which are available to download from the Techne website.

 

Key Features

• Latest 5.7 inch colour touchscreen provides optimal brightness and clarity
• Well-designed intuitive software allows fast and simple program setup
