CEFAS21-136 RFQ for Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Thermal Cycler

Cefas require a compact thermal cycling machine to conduct conventional/standard Polymerase Chain Reactions (PCRs) (i.e not quantitative qPCR) on DNA from tissue or environmental samples, to amplify DNA using species-specific primers. Due to the need for high sample throughput on some projects, and space considerations in the lab, a machine with four independently controlled blocks is required. Requirement: A PCR thermal cycler with four independently controlled blocks, to the following specifications: -Capacity for simultaneously running up to three 96-well plates -Capacity for simultaneously running up to three sets of 96 x 0.2 mL tubes -Each block is independently programmable, with independent heated lids -A minimum temperature range of 20 to 60 C. -Compact in size - no larger than length x width 80 x 80 cm. -Memory for storing 50+ programmes Delivery and Installation Requirements: It is important to Cefas that delivery is made before or during WC 21st March 2022 to ensure payment by end of FY. If delivery cannot be accommodated in this timeframe, Cefas reserve the right to withdraw from the exercise or request additional documentation to be provided as evidence of ownership. The equipment is required to be delivered/installed to Cefas Lowestoft NR33 0HT. All pricing provided must be inclusive of delivery 'INCOTERM DDP' if item is being imported (please advise).
