Industry-standard PCR technology

Our newly launched MiniAmp Thermal Cycler, like its 2720 Thermal Cycler predecessor, continues the Applied Biosystems tradition of reliability and performance that customers around the world have come to expect from Applied Biosystems thermal cyclers.

Spacing saving footprints

The 2720 Thermal Cycler fits almost anywhere with dimensions of only 21 cm (8.3 in.) wide and 36 cm (14.2 in.) deep. And because its cooling vents are in the back, you can safely squeeze it into tight spaces to save your valuable bench space.

The footprint for the MiniAmp Thermal Cycler is even smaller (7.5 in (19 cm) wide), and at an entry-level price, they are perfect for every lab bench.
