Product Description

The new MultiGene™ OptiMax replaces our successful and reliable MultiGene™ Gradient thermal cycler and brings new speed and advanced features to our Labnet Thermal Cycler line providing premium performance at an affordable price.

The MultiGene™ OptiMax employs a new protocol optimization process improving on older gradient features. The OptiMax utilizes FlexTemp™ technology that effectively separates the 96 well plate into 6 – (4 x 4) temperature regions that allow you to pick the temperatures you want to test against. These regions are easily identified by the blue and black squares visible on the microplate platen, Instead of having the thermal cycler choose temperatures for you, you can choose any temperatures you want within a 24°C range.

The MultiGene™ OptiMax has a heating rate of 4°C /sec and a cooling rate of 3°C/sec. We have minimized overshooting and undershooting so that your reactions only see the temperatures they are supposed to see. This also leads to faster runs time.


PC Viewer Option

New is the PC Viewer Option. By downloading our software from our website and attaching a USB cable to your Windows PC to can view the temperature profiles real time as they are occurring to monitor your system.

Intuitive User Interface

The MultiGene™ OptiMax utilizes an intuitive user interface. This user interface is friendly to the laboratory environment and consistent with what our customers previously enjoyed in our earlier models. It can be used with lab gloves even if wet. We have improved the ramping speed and eliminated overshooting and undershooting which contributes to longer run times.

Fully Adjustable Heated Lid

The OptiMax’s heated lid is fully adjustable to provide optimum pressure for use with a broad range of tubes and microplates. For optimum performance, the lid can also be programmed to hold different temperatures between 60° to 65°C and 100° to 115°C. The OptiMax lid prevents condensation and slides away and back from the user to provide full access to samples and reduce the risk of coming in contact with a hot surface.
