The 3 PRIME G is a small gradient thermal cycler that builds on all the features of the 3 PRIME X instrument. The 48 well block format offers eight columns for annealing temperature optimisation and six rows for optimising reagents such as MgCl2 and primer concentrations. Annealing temperatures can be optimised over 30oC between temperatures 30°C to 80°C. The gradient calculator function displays the temperature for each of the eight columns, ensuring easy replication of thermal conditions.
