MiniAmp Thermal Cyclers

Routine PCR, elevated–
Cloud-enabled for secure remote access

Backed by the proven reliability of Applied Biosystems technology the MiniAmp Plus Thermal Cycler and the MiniAmp Thermal Cycler were designed for routine PCR. With their compact design, just 7.5 in (19 cm) wide, and entry-level price, MiniAmp Thermal Cyclers are perfect for every lab bench.

The primary difference between the MiniAmp Plus Thermal Cycler and the MiniAmp Thermal Cycler is the block. The MiniAmp Thermal Cycler has an isothermal block, while the MiniAmp Plus Thermal Cycler offers an upgrade to a VeriFlex Block for PCR optimization.

MiniAmp Plus Thermal Cycler

VeriFlex Block (96-well, 0.2 mL)
Three independent temperature zones for easy PCR optimization

MiniAmp Plus Thermal Cycler

MiniAmp Thermal Cycler

Isothermal block (96-well, 0.2 mL)
Uniform block temperature for basic PCR

Precise PCR optimization with VeriFlex Blocks

Applied Biosystems VeriFlex Blocks provide a better-than-gradient approach to PCR optimization. With three independently controlled zones, you have precise control over optimization temperatures.

  • Enable highly accurate determination of optimal annealing temperatures
  • Help eliminate guesswork often associated with standard gradient cyclers
  • Help 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
