The ProFlex™ 2xFlat PCR System is the latest in our line of Applied Biosystems® thermal cyclers. The ProFlex™ system combines the reliability and performance you’ve come to expect from Applied Biosystems® instruments with the flexible configuration and control features that adapt to your research needs. The 2xFlat block is optimized for use with 8 TaqMan® OpenArray® Genotyping plates, and 24 20K chips for use with QuantStudio™ 3D Digital PCR system.

The ProFlex™ 2xFlat PCR System allows you to:

• Interchange the 2xflat block with another block type if your throughput needs change
• Access the system remotely (and conveniently) through a mobile app
• Program the instrument in seconds with a simple-to-use touchscreen interface
• Simulate your old instrument with Thermal Simulation modes
• Optimize your PCR quickly and efficiently with better-than-gradient VeriFlex™ blocks

Interchangeable Blocks
If your research requirements change in the future, or if you share the system with someone who requires a different format, simply remove the 2xflat block from the top of the instrument and exchange it with another block type. This step typically takes less than 15 seconds, and requires no tools or kits.

Mobile App Connectivity
Have you ever set up all of your PCR reactions, only to find out that the thermal cycler is already in use? Check its availability with a mobile app before you get to the lab. Also download experimental report files, receive alerts, and more! Download our PCR Essentials app updated with this functionality.

Simulation Modes
The ProFlex™ PCR system is equipped with Simulation Modes that mimic your old thermal cycler's ramp rate. Simulation modes are available for MJ Research PTC 200, Bio-Rad® C1000, Bio-Rad® MyCycler™, Eppendorf® Mastercycler®, Applied Biosystems® 9700, Applied Biosystems® 9600, and Applied Biosystems® Veriti® systems.

8.4' Touch Screen Control
The simple and intuitive touchscreen interface allows you to program with ease, and limits the amount of time spent training yourself and others how to use the system.
