PCR (Mastercycler® X40) by Eppendorf SE
The Eppendorf Mastercycler X40 leads your standard PCR into a new era. Its futuristic design is paired with known quality. The performance of the reliable aluminum block is developed for excellent temperature homogeneity. A 12-column gradient offers fast PCR optimization. Programs from older Mastercycler models can easily be imported. Use the program migration feature to transfer protocols from other cycler models so that you can start right away. All programming is done fast, intuitive, and comfortably via a chemical-resistant glass surface touchscreen and the well-established user interface also used for Mastercycler X50. The handle can be operated with one hand and the SafeLid automatically adapts to apply the perfect pressure on your samples for evaporation protection. No matter if you use 0.1 mL, 0.2 mL tubes and tube strips, or PCR plates. Any type of PCR plate − skirted, semi-skirted and unskirted plates − can be used.
For monitoring and audit trails, you can connect the Mastercycler X40 directly to Visonize LabSuite and by connecting multiple Eppendorf Visionize onboard devices you can transform your lab into a digital lab.
All in a thermal cycler that is only slightly larger than a piece of paper and weighs just 7.25 kg.
Sustainability is a must, therefore the Mastercycler X40 is shipped in a stable, protective cardboard box. The short manual included is enough to start your PCR immediately and the full manual is available as a digital version, accessible via a QR code on the device.
Improving ergonomics across the lab
Ergonomics goes far beyond just the »ergonomically designed chair«. At Eppendorf, we began optimizing our laboratory devices for ergonomics in the early 1970s.
In 2003, we launched the PhysioCare Concept®, focusing on ergonomic liquid handling devices, like our pipettes.
Nowadays, the Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept has broadened to include many laboratory products, including PCR cyclers. Our aim is to offer a holistic solution for harmonizing the workflow in your laboratory with your health and well-being.
For the Eppendorf Mastercyler range, this means:
› Ergonomically designed lid closure
› Low noise level for convenient working conditions at the bench
› Small footprint to enable position in direct arm reach at your bench
› Standardized »user-interface concept« for intuitive handling of devices
› Guided software for easy handling
Simple, intuitive documentation and tracking
The eLabJournal® Electronic Lab Notebook offers an intuitive and flexible solution to document research and track research data, including optimal PCR cycler temperatures and results. Improve efficiency when documenting, organizing, searching, and archiving collected data. With the free eLabJournal add-ons, you can extend the functionality of eLabJournal to a fully integrated Laboratory Information Management System.
