Biometra TRobot Robotic PCR Thermal Cycler
Related Products

The TRobot PCR Thermal Cycler from Biometra is an automated PCR machine specifically designed for integration in robotic environments. This robotic PCR machine uses a small amount of bench space and consists of two separate parts; the block module which can be placed in the robotic enclosure, and the controller which can be located outside of the PCR workstation for easy access. The block module features a motorized heated lid and a uniquely designed motorized plate lifter to elevate plates from the block for easy removal. In addition, the TRobot Manager Software can be directly linked to any origin robot software, allowing for quick, easy access to all thermocycler functions. Overall, the TRobot is an efficient PCR machine that delivers high sample throughput making it the perfect solution for integration in robotic systems.

Product Features:
  • Block Material:
    • Anodized aluminum (384 well model)
    • Silver (96 well model)
  • Motorized lid and plate lifter
  • Same fast speed and temperature uniformity as traditional bench top thermal cyclers
  • Separate thermal cycler and controller for optimization and disk space
  • Small footprint - many cyclers can be placed side by side in a parallel configuration
