The Bio-Rad Tetrad 2 is a robust Thermal Cycler used for PCR reaction.  The base accommodates four interchangeable blocks for various microplates, tubes and slides.  The Thermal Cycler features built-in software with onboard PCR protocols needed for a wide range of DNA and RNA applications.  The Bio-Rad Tetrad 2 was designed to increase productivity in today’s high throughput laboratories.  This easy-to-use Thermal Cycler has the ability to run up to eight independent runs at the same time. In addition, the Tetrad 2 from Bio-Rad allows the user to choose between block temperature controls, or calculate temperature control for accuracy and high speed.  The DNA Engine use a standard PS-2 optics mouse and a Graphic User Interface (GUI) to streamline use of the Thermal Cycler.  Contact us today for information on our Bio-Rad Tetrad 2.
