Techne TC-5000 Thermal Cycler

Please note - this product is now obsolete. Please click here for the current models.

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 advanced protocols.

Graphical display

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 single experiment.

Gradient calculator

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.
