The TC-5000 gradient thermal cycler enables you to optimise your
experiments at the "touch of a screen", with the same mechanical features
as the TC-4000.
Proven track record
Over 20 years experience in thermal cycler design ensures that the Techne
TC-5000 encompasses reliability with all the specifications required for
The 'real-time' graphical display shows the sample temperature profile
while the program is running, including the upper and lower limits of the
gradient. This pictorial, real-time representation means instant
visualisation of your experiment's status.
The TC-5000 incorporates a unique user-friendly programming interface
provided by a 115 x 90mm touch-sensitive screen.
Excellent heating rate
A maximum heating rate of 3.0°C/sec and block uniformity of ±0.3°C at
50°C with or without a gradient...no compromise!
Wide linear gradient
The most linear 96-well gradient cycler on the market, with an amazing
range of 30°C, allowing annealing temperatures to be optimised in a
The gradient calculator function displays the temperature of each column
of tubes. This ensures replication of the experimental conditions.
Gradient range 20°C to 70°C, maximum 30°C
Quad Circuit Technology: Each block consists of 8 Peltier units,
controlled by 4 independent temperature thermistors (control sensors)
distributed evenly across the block. This ensures that the TC-5000
exhibits the most accurately controlled linear gradient available
Versatile block format: The truly user-friendly interchangeable block
system allows blocks to be changed in a matter of seconds without the
need for any tools (60 x 0.5ml, 96 x 0.2 ml, 96 x 0.2 ml for fully skirted
plates, 384-well, or flat plate for In-situ)
Decremental/incremental time and temperature
Defined pressure, programmable heated lid
PC control via Gensoft software with free upgrades available. The TC-5000 is networkable and can be linked to a
single PC together with other thermal cyclers in the Techne range.
