PCR Thermal Cycler

FastGene® UltraCycler

At the heart of the Ultracycler series instruments lie 6 fully independant sets of peltiers, 3 temperature sensors and control electronics. This powerful and reliable thermal engine is capable of delivering high ramp rates of averagely of 5 °C per second with our standard low thermal mass composite alloy block whilst maintaining a long peltier life and low well to well temperature variaton. The UltraCycler is available with and without the gradient function

The Gradient Advantage

The gradient function allows you to optimise your reactions. Discover the best annealing temperature over a range of 24 °C.

The block system is designed for the use of 96 individual PCR tubes (0.2 ml), 12 PCR 8-well strips (0.2 ml) or 96-well PCR plates (0.2 ml). UltraCycler combines the latest electronics and peltier technology with unusually high operating comfort.

Powerful Thermal Engine

A precision composite alloy block with low mass and high thermal conductivity provides excellent ramp rates, long peltier life and low well to well temperature variation.
Heating/ Cooling rate is 5 °C/sec typical heat & cool between denat & anneal (block)

Heated Lid Evaporation Control

The UltraCycler employs an applied pressure heated lid design to keep the air contained within the tube hotter than the reaction volume. This causes any evaporation to condense back into the cooler reaction liquid, thereby eliminating the need for an oil or wax condensation overlay.

Compact Footprint

Boasting a footprint of only 18 x 28.5 x 19 cm (W x D x H), the UltraCycler is designed to save valuable bench space within the laboratory. Weighing in at just 5.5 kg, this machine is also highly portable for the ever-changing laboratory environment.

Touch Screen Graphical User Interface

A high performance graphical processor with large 7 inch, vivid color touch screen display allows for easy run setup and monitoring. The powerful yet intuitive software makes creation of even the most complex of thermal profiles a breeze. Free software upgrades are provided to keep your instrument up to date with the latest features and developments.

USB Connectivity

A front USB port allows for fast, easy file transfer to USB memory stick enabling the sharing of thermal profiles between instruments and users. The use of a USB mouse is also supported.
