Instrument features

The only thermal cycler that allows simultaneous remote access by three users to control three independent blocks, the ProFlex™ PCR System helps keep your lab’s PCR experiments visible, controllable, and on track.

  • Accessible by multiple users—run three experiments at once with three independently controlled blocks
  • Simple to use—touch screen interface simplifies instrument control
  • Flexible block configuration—accepts five types of thermal blocks for thermal optimization and throughput
  • Works with your current assays—performs like your old instrument with thermal simulation modes
  • Convenient remote access—connect by Wi-Fi and monitor your instrument from anywhere with a free mobile app

Accessible to use

The ProFlex™ PCR System has a triple block (3 x 32 wells) that can be used by one user or shared by different users for 3 different cycling conditions—even at three different times. This makes it really easy for you to share the ProFlex™ PCR System with others in your crowded or busy lab and to move on quickly to your next task.

Flexible blocks

The ProFlex™ PCR System has 5 different blocks that can be changed with the flip of a switch, including the first-of-its-kind 3 x 32-well block. This block allows up to three experiments to be run simultaneously, completely independently of each other and without interference. Dual 96-well and dual 384-well blocks are available for your high-throughput sequencing needs, and a dual flat block is available to support OpenArray® plate technology for genotyping analysis on the QuantStudio™ 12K Flex real-time PCR system.
