The Axygen MaxyGene II Thermal Cycler replaces our successful and reliable MaxyGene. It brings increased speed and advanced features, providing the premium performance you have come to expect from Axygen brand products.
The Axygen MaxyGene II Thermal Cycler is extremely simple to program, compact in design, and built to perform (Figure 1). It makes method optimization affordable and provides consistent, reliable results. Precision Thermal Control provides rapid heating and cooling of the precision-machined sample block by six independently temperature-controlled Peltier modules. A sophisticated algorithm program calculates sample temperature and triggers heating and cooling accordingly, minimizing over- and under-shooting.
The MaxyGene II Thermal Cycler may be programmed to operate between one and six different annealing temperatures across the block (Figure 2). This thermal cycler provides improved throughput by reducing time and simplifies workflow by reducing steps.
A variety of applications can be performed with the Axygen® MaxyGene II, from single temperature soaks to sophisticated multi-step programs. All of these are easily set up. The time or temperature of a cycling step can be automatically increased or decreased during successive cycles. This is useful for “touchdown” applications and for extending annealing times as enzyme is depleted. Programs may also be paused while running. During operation, actual times and temperatures are displayed. Estimated run times are automatically calculated, and a log of the last run can be displayed or downloaded to a printer or PC.
