Complete a PCR protocol in less than 15 minutes with the Thermo Scientific™ Piko™ Thermal Cycler, which meets the highest criteria in thermal performance at twice the speed and half the size of other thermal cyclers. This is achieved using novel technical advances that allow significant reduction in PCR run times and overall size of the instrument. The Piko Thermal Cycler is an ideal solution for both convential and fast PCR applications.
Piko Thermal Cyclers are available with two different block configurations: 24-well and 96-well. 24-well cyclers accept all standard low profile single tubes, 8-tube strips and 24-well Piko PCR Plates. The 96-well instrument utilizes 96-well Piko PCR Plates.
Superior thermal performance: Consistent results from well-to-well because of extremely short setting times and high temperature uniformity across the block
Time savings: PCR in as little as 15 minutes enabled by fast ramp rates and quick settling times
Reagent savings: Repeatable yields from as little as 2μL when using UTW vessels and heat sealers
Space savings: One of the smallest footprints available, fits into a tiny bench space
Energy savings: Short protocols and low wattage requires only one-fourth of the power consumption of typical thermal cyclers
Repeatable sealing prevents sample evaporation: Automatic heated lid provides consistent and tight sealing from run-to-run
