Different block options to fit flexibility needs

Both MiniAmp Thermal Cyclers are small thermocyclers. However, the primary difference between the MiniAmp Plus Thermal Cycler and the MiniAmp Thermal Cycler is the type of 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 with three red-highlighted zones indicating the three temperature zones

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

MiniAmp Thermal Cycler
An isothermal block with one red-highlighted zone indicating the one temperature zone

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