Techne has extended its Prime range of thermal cyclers with the addition of a new in situ hybridisation adapter.

This new innovation allows users to utilise the high performance of the Prime 96 x 0.2ml thermal cycler in an even greater range of applications. By simply inserting the adapter, a standard thermal cycler is instantly converted to an in situ instrument capable of accommodating up to 4 standard size microscope slides with ±0.25˚C block uniformity.

The in situ adapter is a single piece of precision engineered aluminium and, other than occasional cleaning with a mild laboratory detergent, requires no maintenance, making it convenient for busy multi-user labs. The design allows easy removal of glass slides via the corner cut-outs, and the aluminium perimeter ridge means it is completely compatible with the thermal cycler lid. This removes the risk of damage to glass slides and PCR samples if the lid is closed, especially useful in thermal cyclers with automatic or non-adjustable lids.

“For 96-well PCR machine owners wanting to run in situ hybridisation, it is usually necessary to purchase an additional thermal cycler - or at least a new thermal block - at significant expense,” says Jim Bratherton, Techne Product Manager at Bibby Scientific. ”Techne’s new in situ hybridisation adapter is an ideal solution to this problem, converting a 96-well thermal cycler to an in situ hybridisation instrument in one simple step.”

The Techne in situ adapter offers the quickest and most economical solution for researchers wishing to run an in situ hybridisation in their existing 96-well instruments. The adapter can upgrade both new and existing thermal cyclers, and is available now with Bibby Scientific’s two year warranty.
