Thermo Scientific Piko and Arktik thermal cyclers are designed to provide fast ramping rates and quick settling times, excellent PCR efficiency and well-to-well consistency, and a compact footprint.
Thermo Scientific Piko and Arktik thermal cyclers are designed to provide fast
ramping rates and quick settling times, excellent PCR efficiency and
well-to-well consistency, and a compact footprint.
The Piko utilizes ultra-thin walled (UTW) vessels for better temperature
transfer, which enables protocols to be completed more quickly.
The Arktik thermal cycler provides the flexibility of three interchangeable
blocks for standard 96-, 384-, and 2x48-well PCR plates, with a broad and
accurate temperature gradient option offering a cross-block differential of
up to 30 °C.
Both the Piko and Arktik thermal cyclers feature intuitive user interfaces,
with clear display of protocols for efficient programming and operation.
These two new PCR instruments meet the needs of a broad range of researchers,
for applications covering individual PCRs through to high throughput
Available in 24- and 96-well formats, the Piko thermal cycler can use standard
low profile PCR tubes, 8 tube strips as well as specialized 24- and 96-well
Piko PCR plates. The 24- and 96-well UTW Piko plates are ¼ the size of
conventional plates, which, in combination with the unique heating block
design, reduces energy, plastic, and reagent consumption. Furthermore,
instrument’s small size and reduced power consumption make it portable and
ideal for use away from the lab and its automated heated lid provides
consistent and tight sealing for every run.
