ProFlex PCR System

Flexible configuration and control

Now cloud-enabled for secure remote access

The Applied Biosystems ProFlex PCR System combines the reliability and performance you’ve come to expect from Applied Biosystems thermal cyclers with the flexible configuration and control features that fit how you work today. Interchangeable block formats allow you to maximize your throughput or run independent experiments concurrently. And now you can access your ProFlex PCR System with Thermo Fisher Connect, giving you the freedom to design and securely upload your methods and monitor runs from any smartphone or desktop computer.

Run three experiments at once with three independently controlled blocks

The ProFlex PCR System with the 3 x 32-well block option can run three different cycling conditions, at three different times by one or multiple users. This feature makes the ProFlex PCR System easy and efficient to share in busy labs.

Quickly, easily swap out blocks to meet your PCR needs

The ProFlex PCR System has 5 different blocks that can be changed with the flip of a switch, including the first-of-its-kind 3 x 32-well block. This block allows up to three experiments to be run simultaneously, completely independently of each other and without interference. Dual 96-well and dual 384-well blocks are available for your high-throughput sequencing needs, and a dual flat block is available to support Applied Biosystems OpenArray plate technology for genotyping analysis on the Applied Biosystems QuantStudio 12K Flex Real-Time PCR System.

3 x 32-well block for running up to three independent experiments simultaneously.
96-well block for standard PCR applications.
Dual 96-well block for high-throughput sequencing.
Dual 384-well block for higher-throughput sequencing.
Dual flat block supports OpenArray plate technology for genotyping analysis on the QuantStudio 12K Flex Real-Time PCR System.

Precise PCR optimization with VeriFlex technology

VeriFlex Blocks provide a better-than-gradient approach to PCR optimization. With three separate Peltier blocks, you have precise control over three temperature zones.

  • Enables highly accurate determination of optimal annealing temperature
  • Helps eliminate guesswork often associated with standard gradient cyclers
  • Helps save time by running up to three reactions with different annealing temperatures in the same PCR run
  • Use your thermal cycler as an incubator; take advantage of precision temperature control
