Eppendorf Mastercycler Gradient PCR Instrument

Price: $5,250.00

The Eppendorf Mastercycler Gradient is a PCR device for all laboratories working in fields of basic research or routine diagnostics. The instrument requires no heating or cooling aggregates. Sample temperatures can be controlled very rapidly between 4°C and 99°C, during which the temperature can be changed by 3°C per second.

The Mastercycler Gradient can accommodate several different configurations including: microtiter plates (8 x 12), 0.2 mL Eppendorf PCR tubes (96 pc) and 0.5 mL thin-walled Eppendorf micro test tubes (77 pc). The instrument is easy to operate due to an integrated display field and is fitted with a heated lid to prevent condensation formation.

Key Features:

  • Gradient function simplifies protocol optimization
  • Heated lid with integrated Thermal Sample Protection (TSP) technology
  • Intuitive graphic programming
  • SteadySlope* technology ensures constant heating and cooling rates
  • Vapor-protect Technology Features
  • Specialized vapor-protect lid covers the reaction tube or plate with a cushion that conforms to the shape of the tube or plate
  • Lid combines snug fit, high pressure, and excellent heating capabilities to minimize evaporation
  • Reduced evaporation minimizes the increase in concentrations of the components of the reaction mix that can lead to nonspecific binding
  • Only 0 to 3% of the reaction volume evaporates, compared to up to 10% on average and up to 50% at the corner positions of other thermal cyclers


  • Sample capacity: 1 microtiter plate (77 or 96 PCR tubes)
  • Temperature range: 4° to 99°C
  • Control accuracy: +/- 0.2°C
  • Number of programs: 99 maximum
  • Dimensions: 26 cm x 41 cm x 27 cm (W x D x H)
  • Weight: 12.4 kg
  • Voltage: 115 V, 50-60 Hz
