G-Storm GS1 Thermal Cycler

GStorm GS1

The G-Storm GS1 Thermal Cycler is the ideal solution for research scientists looking for a premium thermal cycler with advanced features, accuracy, performance, and ease of use.

All of the GS1 Thermal Cyclers’ blocks are under tetrad engine control ensuring accurate, uniform and reproducible execution of PCR protocols on your thermal cycler regardless of sample loading and regardless of the external environment conditions. Protocols are reproduced consistently sample to sample and run to run. For peace of mind and quality control the performance of all runs on the GS1 Thermal Cycler is stringently monitored by the two on-board processors and the execution of every temperature step is stored in a unique GLP file.  Complex thermal cycling protocols incorporating time increment and decrement, temperature increment and decrement, gradient, hot start, nested PCR and barcode tagging are easily created using an intuitive drag and drop programming style often copied by our competitors but never bettered.

Every GS1 Thermal Cycler has an enormous memory with individual user directories and the capacity for over 10,000 PCR protocols. This makes the GS1 thermal cycler the ideal personal thermal cycler or core laboratory resource thermal cycler choice. The G-Storm GS1 thermal cycler is perfect for the experienced scientist who demands the very highest specifications and features and its intuitive program wizard makes it also ideal for those who are new to molecular biology that require a thermal cycler that is easy to use and to program.

The GS1 Thermal Cyclers’ class leading low power consumption helps the environment and your lab budget. Furthermore it does this with no compromise achieving outstanding performance superior to its more power hungry competitors. Built to the highest specifications, the GS1 offers everything you need from a thermal cycler.
