The Biometra TProfessional Thermocycler is inspired by the desire to simplify molecular biology research. To achieve this goal the instrument housing, lid and block were totally redesigned, providing previously unrealised speed and temperature uniformity. Innovative user software was developed, driven by Biometra's 15 years of experience in interface design. The result is an easy to use thermocycler with excellent technical specifications designed for people who want professional results.

TProfessional Thermoblock
The TProfessional Thermocycler offers three different block modules. To achieve ultimate performance the 96 well modules are made of silver. Due to its excellent heat conductivity, silver equilibrates extremely quickly, thus providing maximum speed and temperature uniformity. To protect the valuable silver blocks against corrosion, the block surfaces are covered with a thin gold layer.

TProfessional Lid
The TProfessional Lid has been optimised to achieve two essential requirements: prevention of condensation and reliable contact between samples and thermoblock. The lid is powered by Biometra's well know smart lid technology which automatically limits lid pressure to save tubes from damage. In addition, the new design of the High Performance Lid ensures an even temperature distribution between samples thus significantly improving temperature uniformity. With one press on the front button, the lid gently swings open and arrests in its end position.

TProfessional User Interface
The TProfessional User Interface incorporates Biometra's proven spreadsheet programming philosophy. Avoiding endless serial program windows, all steps of a program are entered in a single screen. This makes the creation of new or editing existing programs fast and easy. One touch leads from the spreadsheet to an alternative graphical programming mode. When the system is left for 30 minutes the unit automatically activates a screensaver, to protect the display. A keypress allows the user to return to normal view.

The TProfessional manages up to 30 individual users (all password protected) and provides for a large program store. For further protection when the unit is left unattended for 30 minutes, the active user is logged out. This prevents unauthorised editing of key programs.

Over time as programs are added and deleted, many thermocyclers will slow down due to fragmentation of the files in the memory. The TProfessional features a defragmentation tool which reorganises the data storage to improve the reading and writing of program data.

TProfessional Design
The elegant TProfessional housing is designed for heavy use. Due to an optimised air stream design even higher efficiency and better temperature uniformity is achieved. The instrument works quietly and consumes little power which in turn leads to low heat emission. The compact footprint saves valuable bench space. Keypad and display have been set to an angle that ensures reflection-free viewing and ergonomic programming. To facilitate servicing, the TProfessional housing can be completely removed from the chassis.
