MiniAmp Plus Thermal Cycler
The Applied Biosystems MiniAmp Plus Thermal Cycler is a compact, accurate, and economical thermal cycler designed to fit your lab’s basic thermal cycling needs. Innovations like a responsive color touch-screen and VeriFlex Blocks temperature-control technology enable simple, accurate optimization. The MiniAmp Plus Thermal Cycler can be accessed through the Thermo Fisher Cloud, giving you the freedom to design and securely upload your methods from any mobile device or desktop computer.

Key features and benefits:
• VeriFlex Blocks—with three independent temperature zones for precise temperature control over your PCR optimization
• 5-inch intuitive color touch-screen—for easy programming and training of new users
• Small footprint—With dimensions of 19 cm wide and 39 cm deep, you can fit the MiniAmp Thermal Cycler almost anywhere. And because its airflow is front to back, you can set multiple units side by side to save valuable bench space.

MicroAmp Optical 96-Well Reaction Plate with Barcode & Optical Adhesive Films
The Applied Biosystems MicroAmp Optical 96-Well Reaction Plate is optimized to provide unmatched temperature accuracy and uniformity for fast, efficient PCR amplification. This plate, constructed from a single rigid piece of polypropylene in a 96-well format, is compatible with Applied Biosystems 96-well real-time PCR systems and thermal cyclers.
• Frosted to minimize interfering fluorescence from wells of cycling block
• Screened to eliminate auto-fluorescent plates
• Unique design provides a barrier to ambient air to help insure well-to-well temperature uniformity
• Each reaction plate includes a unique serialized, eight-character number label (barcode) that is user-readable and machine-readable to prevent tracking errors

The included MicroAmp Optical Adhesive Films reduce the chance of well-to-well contamination and sample evaporation when applied to the microplates.
• Pressure-sensitive adhesive provides a tight seal over every well
• Will not interfere with sample reading

• Confirm correct alignment to plate, then press to seal• Easy to apply; does not stick to your glove
