SensoQuest design and manufacture their range of Labcycler PCR thermal cyclers in Göttingen, Germany. Both standard and gradient models are available, all with touch screen control and 5 year warranty as standard.
The Labcycler has a processor controlled block with separately controlled peltier elements for
extraordinary temperature homogeneity at high heating and cooling rates.
State-of-the-art peltier elements have demonstrated more than 600,000 cycles so far without any failures. This gives more than 15 years of lifetime even under the most demanding conditions, like DNA-sequencing on a daily basis.
