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 inches (19 cm) wide—and entry-level price, MiniAmp Thermal Cyclers are perfect for every lab bench.
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.
VeriFlex Block (96-well, 0.2 mL)
Three independent temperature zones for easy PCR optimization
Isothermal block (96-well, 0.2 mL)
Uniform block temperature for basic PCR
