EdvoCycler™, FB1891
Catalog Number
Product Description

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a “workhorse” technique in modern DNA analysis-the all-new EdvoCycler allows you to bring PCR to the classroom at an affordable price! The thermal cycler is used to amplify trace amounts of DNA, producing millions of copies of DNA fragments for analysis. PCR is used in medical and biological research labs to sequence genes, diagnose infectious or hereditary diseases, and determine paternity or identity. The EdvoCycler's thermal block accommodates 25, 0.2-mL, thin-walled microtubes. The thermal cycler precisely raises and lowers the temperature according to a pre-set program. Common PCR protocols programmed into the thermal cycler make it easy to use, even for a beginner. New protocols can also be added with temperatures as low as 10 ºC or as high as 99 ºC and a maximum rate of 2 ºC per second. Heated plate in the lid eliminates the need for messy PCR oil or paraffin wax seals. Vivid seven-line LCD displays all program parameters simultaneously without any scrolling. Unit is compact, 16" x 8 1/2" x 7", and weighs only 11 pounds. Two-year warranty. See the “PCR-Based DNA Fingerprinting” kit for a convenient classroom activity using the EdvoCycler.

Gel electrophoresis equipment is required to analyze the PCR samples.

Thin-Walled PCR Tubes, Pkg. of 100, 0.2-mL
Individual tubes made of thin-walled polypropylene and designed to fit precisely into the EdvoCycler. 0.2-mL PCR tubes allow for optimal heat transfer to the sample. Extremely tight-sealing caps allow for low-volume reactions. All PCR tubes are process-sampled...
