eATC Automatic Thermal Cycler

Ybotech eATC Automatic Thermal Cycler is an innovative thermal cycler instrument designed for the automated PCR system. This instrument uses an electric heating lid controlled by the PC protocol, which can coordinate the automated system to run the PCR experiment program and provide a wealth of status information to meet the multi-dimensional operation of the robotic arm. At the same time, eATC adopts a sturdy and compact design, a separate liquid cooling unit and a remote operation display, which can be easily integrated into an automated experimental system. The external liquid cooling unit can be placed arbitrarily to avoid affecting the temperature of the internal experimental space.

gradeKey Features
  • Suitable for various specifications of consumables and various sealing methods.
  • Electric heating lid, constant pressure, avoid reagent leakage and evaporation.
  • PC protocol controls to run PCR program experiments and monitor various information.
  • The reaction plate can be grabbed from the top and side.
  • Split liquid cooling unit with quick connector connection.
  • Modular design of PCR reaction unit, quick replacement and easy maintenance.
  • Separate display operation unit, which can be controlled remotely.
  • It can be used as an independent automated PCR instrument.

eATC Automatic Thermal Cycler can be seamlessly integrated with an external robotic arm or a manipulator of a pipetting workstation to complete automated DNA fragment amplification, enzyme reaction, sample incubation and other experimental steps. Especially suitable for molecular biology experiments in industrialization, automation, large-scale medical testing and other application molecular biology experimental fields. It can also be used alone as an automated Thermal Cycler instrument.
