Over the past 10 years Peltier technology has become the preferred technology used in thermocycling.
This is largely due to its superior heating and cooling
efficiency. In 1989 Biometra launched its first
Peltier-based thermocycler, thus becoming one of
the first companies to offer this advanced technology. Combining proprietary know-how with precision
manufacturing techniques has resulted in the quality
product that is known worldwide under the label
"Biometra”.
The T1 Thermocycler has become the standard for
thermocycling in many laboratories throughout the
world. Due to its advanced block architecture it achieves the high performance that is a prerequisite for
reproducible results. Since its introduction in 1999,
the T1 product line has been continuously extended
to meet the demands of researchers. There are 5
different block formats currently available, suitable
for virtually all types of different plasticware. The
newest addition is the T1plus Thermocycler, which
features bi-directional communication with a computer and is used in high throughput laboratories for
operating multiple instruments in parallel.
Flexibility and accuracy
Silver block
Biometra was the first manufacturer to use silver
blocks for thermocycling. The high thermal conductivity of silver allows for the T1’s fast heating and
cooling rates. The use of silver also makes it possible
to quickly achieve uniform temperature distribution
in the block ensuring that all samples experience the
same reaction conditions. The silver block is gold-plated to protect the surface against corrosion.
Flexibility
A broad range of different block formats is available.
The 96 well block is the most popular version and
can hold microplates, 0.2 ml strips or individual
tubes. The 48 well module is used for 0.5 ml tubes.
The 384 well module, for high-throughput applications, fits microplates and is coated with a special
alloy to facilitate removal of the plates after cycling.
The in situ module accommodates 4 microscopic slides. The T1 combi can be used with both 0.5 and
0.2ml tube. All block modules are freely interchangeable.
Combi block
If both 0.2 and 0.5ml tubes are used in the same
laboratory the T1 Thermocycler combi is the instrument of choice. This block holds 96 x 0.2ml tubes
and also accepts 96 well microplates. Alternatively it
can be used with up to 77 x 0.5ml tubes.
Smart lid technology
Like all Biometra thermocyclers, the
T1 is equipped with a Smart-Lid that
exerts controlled pressure on tubes
and plates. This ensures good thermal
contact between the plasticware and the block and
eliminates condensation. Both of which increase the
accuracy and reproducibility of your experiments.
Network thermocycling
Networking
The T1plus Thermocycler is designed for bi-directional communication with a computer. The Windowsbased T1plus Manager can control up to 16 T1plus
Thermocyclers simultaneously. Temperature data
can be recorded for documentation and can be
exported to spreadsheet programs. The software is
available at no charge upon
request.
■ Send temperature program
to 16 cyclers in parallel
■ Start up to 16 cyclers with
one mouse click
■ Record temperature data for
performance validation
High sample throughput
The T1 Thermocycler 384 has become a very popular instrument for high throughput laboratories.
Either in stand-alone operation or connected to a
computer (T1plus) it is the ideal instrument to cycle
384 well plates. The high precision lid ensures
reliable sealing of microplates. Removal of plates is
facilitated by two manual levers and a special block
coating. Like all Biometra thermocyclers, the temperature of the Smart-Lid is user adjustable. This is
particularly important for 384 well plates because
the distance between the lid and the reaction mix
is small. Therefore, a lower lid temperature is
preferred.
