Amplify with confidence
We offer a broad range of thermal cyclers, plastics, and comprehensive service plans to help meet your specific PCR needs so you can amplify with confidence.
Our engineers have been designing and manufacturing high-quality thermal cyclers since 1987. In that time, Applied Biosystems™ thermal cyclers have built a reputation for reliability, accuracy, and user-friendly interfaces.
Applied Biosystems™ PCR plastics have been designed and validated to work with our thermal cyclers for more than 25 years. That’s why they are Engineer Approved to enable optimal PCR performance.
