Sustainability for PCR Cyclers

PCR cyclers are one of the analytical pillars in the lab. Amplification of DNA fragments is needed in every molecular lab.

How can I find a sustainable PCR cycler?

Energy savings
Heating and cooling of samples in a highly exact and fast approach is the most important task of a cycler. Efficient Peltier elements and smart run control software contribute to low energy consumption. A sophisticated ventilation system reduces further the power consumption.

Healthy working conditions become more and more important in the lab. Whereas the direct interaction with a PCR cycler is limited to comfortable and easy opening and closing of the lid, the noise level during the run and during the 4°C idle step is crucial when you have to work besides the cycler.

The longer the life of a cycler, the more favorable for you as an user and our environment. The price often plays a decisive role when purchasing a new or another cycler. What about cost-of-ownership? Extend the life of your PCR instrument by regular cleaning and inspection, regular maintenance, and repair and exchange of spare parts.

PCR consumables
Due to contamination risks, re-usability of PCR consumables is not recommended.
