Applied Biosystems GeneAmp® PCR System 9700


GeneAmp® PCR System 9700

GeneAmp® PCR System 9700 is specifically designed for the amplification of nucleic acids. The GeneAmp® PCR System 9700 consists of a base module and one of many interchangeable sample block modules. The 96-well GeneAmp® PCR System 9700 is designed for use with 0.2 ml reaction tubes or 96-well reaction plates for all of your routine PCR applications.


  • Interchangeable sample block modules for greater flexibility   
  • Gold-plated silver blocks for high speed 5°C/sec average heating/cooling rate of block   
  • Aluminum sample blocks designed for routine PCR and cycle sequencing   
  • Gold-plated silver block provides maximum durability  
Aluminum Block for Flexibility  
The 96-Well GeneAmp® PCR System 9700 can now be used with Gold-plated Silver and Aluminum Sample Blocks Modules. The aluminum block has been designed for routine use of PCR reactions and cycle sequencing in a conventional 8 X 12 well format. This allows the 96-well 9700 system to be used in 9600 emulation mode and standard mode.  
Gold Block for High Performance  
The gold-plated silver sample block has been engineered for maximum performance and durability, utilizing a rapid heat transfer design of electroformed silver to maximize heating/cooling rates and goldplating for maximum durability. This allows the gold-plated silver 96-well 9700 system to be used in MAX Mode (5°C/sec average heating/cooling of block) and 9600 emulation mode.

Calibration of Geneamp 9700

Hello!   I have an old Geneamp 9700 PCR system with a dual 384 block. Recently, I said "Fatal block error".   I read some Q/A comment here and found the reason would be the block sensor failure. Actually, the...

Spurious Errors

Spurious errors that randomly displayed. Sometimes on start up, sometimes during a run. Any ideas?

Temperature Non Uniformity test

When you do this calibration you enter in the temperatures at the end and the program says Pass or Fail. What is the calculation used here?
