Thermal cyclers are the instruments used to amplify DNA segments and perform temperature sensitive
reactions. These thermal cyclers consist of a block designed to accommodate micro centrifuge tubes or
96-well plates for precise temperature control and uniform operation. These are useful in molecular
genetics research areas like genetic finger printing, DNA cloning, DNA sequencing, genetic testing,
prenatal testing, tissue typing, preimplantation of genetic diagnosis, quantitative determination of
gene expression levels etc.
