Eppendorf launches Mastercycler Nexus X1 PCR tool

20th February 2013

Eppendorf has announced the launch of the Mastercycler Nexus X1, the latest addition to its advanced Mastercycler range of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) instruments.

The device utilises innovative software and a rapid 96-well block to increase its heating and cooling rates, providing a range of efficiency benefits and advantages in terms of ease of use.

Thanks to its heating rate of five degrees C per second, the unit can offer short run times that allow it to be used multiple times in a day, while up to three machines can be combined to maximise throughput.

Moreover, when it is in use the device can be connected to a computer network, allowing users to receive email updates on the progress of the PCR run in real time.

Dr Kay Korner, global senior product manager at Eppendorf, said: "The Mastercycler Nexus X1 combines short run times, low noise levels and low power consumption in a single innovative and affordable instrument."

Earlier this month, the manufacturer noted that its basic Mastercycler Nexus unit was recently used by the respected health charity Wellcome Trust in a PCR setup training video.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801544007-ADNFCR
