Product Info

The new standard PCR Thermal cycler
The FlexCycler2 is a modern thermal cycler with large graphical displayand exceptional design. The instrument offers state-of-the-art heating and cooling rates in combination with high control accuracy. Thanks to the excellent temperature uniformity over the complete temperature range the system consistently ensures reproducible conditions.

By the Quick-X-Change block exchange system the FlexCycler2 canbe flexibly adapted to different requirements. In combination withthe user friendly software concept and extensive software optionsthe FlexCycler2 is the perfect system for PCR applications.

Housing
The housing of the FlexCycler2 attracts by its distinctive design with clear layout of the line and functionality. Due to the high quality of workmanship, the unit is designed for continuous use in the routine.

Block exchange system
By Quick-X-Change technology the FlexCycler2 block modules can be exchanged within seconds. The block exchange function of the FlexCycler2 provides the flexibility to adapt the configuration of the instrument in seconds. Besides single block modules also twin block modules are available which are equipped with two independently controllable blocks and heated lids. The twin block modules offer the possibility to run two different protocols at the same time. Optionally blocks can also be equipped with gradient function which allows the quick and easy optimization of new PCR assays.

Heated Lid
The heated lid of the FlexCycler2 is equipped with High Performance Smart Lid (HPSL) technology that ensures the formation of a homogenous tempered air cushion between the samples. The instrument therefore provides excellent temperature uniformity over the entire block and reproducible PCR conditions regardless of the position of the samples.

User Interface
The FlexCycler2 user interface provides the convenience of a user-specific choice of operating language and allows the programming of temperature programs in clearly arranged table format (Easy Spreadsheet Programming (ESP)). All parameters can be set in one single screen.

User administration
The FlexCycler2 can manage up to 30 different user directories which can be optionally protected by a PIN code. PCR protocols in protected directories can not be modified or deleted by other users. In addition to the normal users the supervisor (administrator) has additional privileges.

User-specific quick start of protocols
The FlexCycler2 can manage up to 30 different user directories which can be optionally protected by a PIN code. PCR protocols in protected directories can not be modified or deleted by other users. In addition to the normal users the supervisor (administrator) has additional privileges.

USB functions
By a USB stick temperature programs can be exchanged easily between different FlexCycler2 instruments. Moreover for GLP compliant documentation of PCR runs run-logfiles and service info files can be saved.
