Peqlab 9196002-US



Introducing the remarkable peqSTAR family - a high performance range of thermocyclers with PCR technology designed for the 21st century. The combination of high specification engineering and superior system control enables powerful, fast ramping, stable temperature control and a high level of system reliability. The 'touch screen' control, USB ports, LAN connection and the universal block for 0.2 ml and 0.5 ml tubes result in unique ease of use. Various interchangeable blocks (96 Well, 384 Well, in situ, High Pressure or Motor Lid) are available for the peqSTAR thermocyclers.
