“Mini-sized” doesn’t have to mean a sacrifice on features and performance. Benchmark’s
TC-32 Mini Thermal Cycler retains the advanced programming features, easy to use software
and fast, reliable cycling of the larger TC-9639 Thermal Cycler, but with a smaller block and
lower price point.
Designed for lower throughput needs, the TC-32 Mini Thermal Cycler has a capacity for
32×0.2ml tubes. The wells are arranged in a 4×8 format, allowing the block to accept strips
of 8 as well as individual tubes. The block heats and cools very quickly – at rates as fast as
5°C/second. A proprietary algorithm controls block temperature, bringing samples quickly to
the target temperature without any over or under-shoot. Excellent block uniformity ensures
consistency from sample to sample.
The operation of the thermal cycler is controlled from the large, full color, touch screen.
Icon-driven menus allow users to get running quickly. Programming is extremely simple and
includes options for time and temperature increment/decrements, adjustable ramp rates,
and auto-pause and restart functions. More than 100 typical programs can be stored in
memory and easily recalled. After a run, samples can be held at 4°C. An on-screen report is
also available at the completion of a run.
The heated lid is self-adjusting – the spring-loaded platen in the lid comes firmly into contact
with the tops of the tubes to prevent sample evaporation and condensation. There are no
knobs to turn or levers to adjust. The temperature of the heated lid can be changed or the
heating function of the lid may be turned off.
With a footprint less than that of the average laboratory notebook, the TC-32 Mini Thermal
Cycler will fit almost anywhere. Its reduced capacity block and economical price make
the TC-32 Mini Thermal Cycler the perfect choice for lower throughput laboratories and
For research use only.
