Laird Technologies has recently announced that it is set to demonstrate a new reference design for a compact PCR thermal cycler for field-level DNA amplification at Pittcon 2013.

Designed to provide small, single-well systems with rapid, programmable control, the Laird PowerCycler will expedite the amplification process and enable point-of-service systems. The compact thermal cycler design is capable of producing upto a 25C per second temperature ramp in a 50?L sample, which is five times faster than standard cyclers. The compact thermal cycler reference design features the new MA8000 series of thin-film thermoelectric arrays that offer high heat flux capacity, robust mechanical design and source-matched heat flux density for ease of integration into thermal cycling platforms.

"Medical and analytical instruments require compact thermal management solutions with high-performance and high-reliability," said Andrew Dereka, Product Manager. "Pittcon presents an excellent opportunity for Laird to demonstrate its industry-leading thermal management products and capabilities to the laboratory and medical sciences markets."

Laird's Thermal Management Solutions group will also showcase the PowerCool Series of thermoelectric assemblies and the PR-59 temperature controller for precise temperature stabilisation of medical diagnostics, analytical instrumentation and photonics laser systems.

The PowerCool Series are highly-efficient, high-performance thermoelectric assemblies with a wide product breadth and diverse heat transfer mechanisms. The PR-59 temperature controller is designed to control thermoelectric assemblies with precise temperature stability and features a Graphical User Interface (GUI).

Pittcon is the leading showcase for scientific innovations in laboratory equipment, technology and supplies. With more than 900 exhibitors and 17,000 attendees, this year's Pittcon proves to be the largest event yet. The program includes networking and technical sessions along with educational programs fafor attendees within the laboratory sciences industry across the world.
