Piko™ Thermal Cyclers - high thermal performance in a tiny footprint. Piko, inspired by the Italian word “piccolo,” meaning tiny, aptly describes Finnzymes’ new PCR system. At the heart of the Piko Thermal Cycler lies our unique heat pump. Designed to deliver bridled power, it results in industry-leading thermal uniformity, accuracy, ramp rates and settling times. This not only allows for PCR protocols in as little as 10 minutes, but also assures consistent results from well-to-well and instrume... Read more

  • Application Area:Routine PCR

"The Piko Thermal Cycler has an easy to use and very intuitively designed user interface. It also has a fast heating and cooling rate. The PCR chamber can hold up to 24 Samples in easy to use sample strips. Also it is useful to be able to open every tube on its own; you don’t have to open the whole strip. Unfortunately the PCR machine we are using in our lab displays a single error sometimes. This is very annoying because the whole program stops and the PCR cannot continue. The Thermal Cycler was already repaired two times but only a few weeks after it was returned from the repair it displays the same error again ("Heat sink to cold"). But I am still using it despite the danger of loosing some samples because nevertheless the Piko is fast and easy to use. I would recommend this device to a colleague, but only for fast routine PCRs e.g. colony PCRs and bacteria."

Piko Thermal Cyclers are available in 24- and 96-well block formats.

Features
  • Half the size of the smallest thermal cyclers
  • Licensed for PCR
  • Automatic pressure setting motorized heated lid
