GS-96/ GS-2x48/ GS-384/ GS-96 PRO Gradient Touch Thermal Cycler

GS-96/ 60/ 2x48/ 384/ 4830 Gradient Touch Thermal Cycler is a reliable gradient thermal cycler that delivers exceptional thermal performance for great accuracy and reproducibility in nucleic acid amplification with 8 Peltier elements, 4 independent temperature sensors and high ramping rates up to 5oC/sec.

GS-96 and GS-60 models come with a standard 96-well x 0.2 ml block and 60-well x 0.5 ml block respectively while GS-384 model comes with 384-well block format to handle high throughput PCR experiments.

GS-2x48 model is a dual-block system with two separate 48-well x 0.2 ml reaction module while GS-4830 model comes with 48-well x 0.2 ml plus 30-well x 0.5 ml block format. User can interchange all of these reaction modules easily without requiring any special tools.

GS-96 PRO Gradient Touch Thermal Cycler is the upgraded version of GS-96 model that is engineered with HexaPRO Block that have 6 temperature zones for PCR optimization.


  • Easy to program
    8 inches TFT touchscreen display and intuitive graphical programming makes navigation, protocol editing and viewing easier
  • High performance lid
    The lids are engineered with unique clutch mechanism which automatically limit the lid pressure applied against sample container, thus prevent PCR tubes/plates from damage
  • Easy data output
    Able to save and transfer files using USB flash drive
  • Personalized log in users and passwords
    Log in feature allows users to set password for individual account to fully monitor their protocols with more privacy
  • LAN network enabled
    Users able to control up to 30 thermal cyclers simultaneously via PC-controlled network
  • Free and easy software updates
    Software update from USB flash makes the software updates easier
  • GLP report
    GLP report completely records essential information of all PCR run
  • Incubation setting
    Incubation setting module allows users to program desired incubation block temperature and hold time
