Eppendorf Mastercycler ep Thermal Cyclers

Eppendorf Mastercycler ep series thermal cyclers are a faster, reliable, and flexible solution to you PCR needs. The gradient function the the EP series thermal cyclers help you simplify protocol optimizations. Eppendorf EP series PCR thermal cyclers can also easily be connected cycler to cycler ideal for modular laboratory environments. Eppendorf ep series thermal cyclers all feature electronic sample protection or ESP to ensure that sames are always heated efficiently and evenly. There is also an option for a motorized, on-touch automatic lid which may be a consideration if you plan to provide combine compatibility with robotic systems.

A control panel with graphical user interface and color display (sold separately) also be used to control Mastercycler ep modules.

Eppendorf Mastercycler ep Control Panel

  • EP series thermal cyclers include intuitive software which tracks and reports the status of your sample runs
  • The control panel on these units can be operated with keypad or by almost any mouse to create and edit protocols in optional password-protected folders
  • Protocols can be easily edited—simply type in a new time or temperature, or add or delete a step with the touch of a button
  • Almost any external printer can be attached directly to the thermal cycler to print GLP-compliant reports with minimal fuss
  • Take control of up to five Mastercycler ep cyclers can be controlled by one control panel
  • If you require a little more throughput connect to a PC to control up to 30 Mastercycler ep units


Eppendorf Mastercycler Nexus Overview

Eppendorf Mastercycler EP Thermal Cycler Overview

The Eppendorf Mastercycler ep series thermal cycler range is made up of the Eppendorf Mastercycler ep gradient, the Mastercycler ep gradient S and the Mastercycler ep 384.

The Eppendorf Mastercycler gradient model uses aluminum heating blocks and has a gradient range of 1-20°C. The Eppendorf Mastercycler ep gradient s has a wider gradient range of 1-24°C this improvement is achieved through the use of a silver heating block. Both the ep gradient and ep gradient s have temperature control rates of 4-99°C and support 96 well plates with 0.2ml tubes and strips.

The Eppendorf Mastercycler also includes the Eppendorf Mastercycler ep 384 thermal cycler. This model shares many of the features of the Eppendorf Mastercycler ep gradient, but can hold up to 384 wells.


Additional Features

  • Two block materials available
  • Aluminum block allows for efficient heat transfer to samples
  • Triple Circuit Technology (TCT) provides an additional heating and cooling zone for precise temperature control of all gradient profiles

  • Silver block provides enhanced heating capabilities
  • SteadySlope* Technology ensures constant heating and cooling rates and allows the
    results of gradient experiments to be transferred seamlessly to routine applications
