ProFlex PCR System

Flexible configuration and control
– and upgraded mobility

The 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 depending on your PCR needs. The ProFlex PCR system is now equipped with superior cloud connectivity and enhanced mobility that enable secure access of your thermal cycler when and where you want it*.

Instrument features

The only thermal cycler that allows simultaneous remote access by three users to control three independent blocks, the ProFlex™ PCR System helps keep your lab’s PCR experiments visible, controllable, and on track.

  • Accessible by multiple users—run three experiments at once with three independently controlled blocks
  • Simple to use—touch screen interface simplifies instrument control
  • Flexible block configuration—accepts five types of thermal blocks for thermal optimization and throughput
  • Works with your current assays—performs like your old instrument with thermal simulation modes
  • Improved connectivity and mobility—connect via the cloud or mobile device from anywhere with 10GB of free storage and a free mobile app

    Connect to your ProFlex from anywhere in 3 easy steps:

  1. Download the Firmware upgrade. To connect to the Thermo Fisher Cloud, you need to download the instrument firmware version 1.2 or later on the Instrument Software, patches and updates page. Download now >

Accessible to use

The ProFlex™ PCR System has a triple block (3 x 32 wells) that can be used by one user or shared by different users for 3 different cycling conditions—even at three different times. This makes it really easy for you to share the ProFlex™ PCR System with others in your crowded or busy lab and to move on quickly to your next task.

The "What If?" is now: ProFlex™ PCR System

Flexible blocks

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 OpenArray® plate technology for genotyping analysis on the QuantStudio™ 12K Flex real-time PCR system.
