Key Highlights:
• Interchangeable sample block modules for greater flexibility
• Gold-plated silver blocks for high speed 5°C⁄sec average heating⁄cooling rate of block
• Aluminum sample blocks designed for routine PCR and cycle sequencing
• Gold-plated silver block provides maximum durability

Aluminum Block for Flexibility
The 96-Well GeneAmp® PCR System 9700 can now be used with Gold-plated Silver and Aluminum Sample Block Modules. The aluminum block has been designed for routine use of PCR reactions and cycle sequencing in a conventional 8 X 12 well format. This allows the 96-well 9700 system to be used in 9600 emulation mode and standard mode.

Gold Block for High Performance
The gold-plated silver sample block has been engineered for maximum performance and durability, utilizing a rapid heat transfer design of electroformed silver to maximize heating⁄cooling rates and goldplating for maximum durability. This allows the gold-plated silver 96-well 9700 system to be used in MAX Mode (5°C / sec average heating⁄cooling of block) and 9600 emulation mode.
