The LightCycler® Sample Carousel has 32 positions to hold LightCycler® Capillaries (20 µl). The carousel is manufactured with a special plastic material (Peek) that is not only resistant to the temperature changes that occur during the thermal cycling process, but also maintains shape and dimensions during the process, a prerequisite for precise positioning and reproducible detection.
The LightCycler® Sample Carousel is provided to increase the throughput achievable with the LightCycler® 1.5 Instrument and older versions.
Note: The LightCycler® Sample Carousel is compatible with the LightCycler® Capillaries (20 µl) used with the LightCycler® Instrument, Cat. No. 12 011 468 001, and the LightCycler® 1.5 Instrument.
