The Biorad Tetrad 2 PCR thermal cycler is powerful, flexible, high throughput, and an updated version of the back bone of the Human Genome Project. This PCR Machine accommodates a variety of tubes, slides and microplates thanks to its interchangeable blocks. Users of the Biorad Tetrad 2 PCR thermal cycler can navigate easy to use software, and a graphical interface with the use of Dual Alpha units and the four bay system allows you to run up to 8 independent protocols at once.  

The Biorad Tetrad 2 PCR thermal cycler is flexible giving users the choice of block temperature control for compatibility with a variety of instrument types and protocols, or calculate temperature control for high speed and accuracy. Multizone Thermal Control of this PCR Machine enable superior well-to-well uniformity and highly reproducible temperatures using software to control the cyclers in the DNA engine. Run times of The Biorad Tetrad 2 Thermal Cycler can be a short as 35 minutes, letting you perform fast PCR without sacrificing gradient capability, flexibility or modularity.  SYBR Green real-time PCR quantitation data can be gathered in under 40 minutes.
