Overview of Eppendorf 5331 MasterCycler Gradient Thermal Cycler
The Eppendorf Mastercycler and Mastercycler gradient are PCR devices for all molecular biological and
biochemical laboratories in the field of basic research or routine diagnostics.
Temperature control is carried out with Peltier elements, which enable extremely rapid changes in temperature of up to 3 °C per second. This allows the temperature of the samples to be controlled extremely rapidly between 4 °C and 99 °C.
A special “tube control” mode has been developed for temperature-controlling samples in various different tubes with various different filling volumes.
The thermoblock has been constructed as a universal block which can accommodate microtiter plates in the 8 x 12 format, 96 Eppendorf PCR test tubes of 0.2 ml, 77 thin-walled Eppendorf PCR test tubes of 0.5 ml or other suitable tubes – without the block having to be exchanged.
