Torrey Pines Scientific introduces new EchoTherm models

Torrey Pines Scientific has introduced their new EchoTherm SC20 and SC25 models. The SC20 is a simple digital unit while the SC25 is fully programmable with a five-program memory making both ideal for use with biological and other samples.

Both have a temperature range from -20°C to 100°C and incorporate a variable speed orbital shaker for mixing and controlling the temperature of samples simultaneously.

Both units have a 30-day count down timer with alarm and auto-off, data logger, and RS232 I/O port for data logging or controlling the units from a computer.

The SC20XT and SC25XT accommodate accessory sample blocks available for 0.2, 0.5, 1.5, 15 and 50ml centrifuge tubes. Also available are blocks for 2ml vials, 20ml scintillation vials, PCR tubes and plates, 96-well and 384-well assay plates of all shapes, deep-well assay plates, and other blocks for various sizes of test tubes.

The units are Peltier driven, with control to 1°C, shaking range from 200 to 1000 rpm and have a backlit two-line alphanumeric display.

These instruments are excellent molecular biology tools and can be used to run temperature/time profiles, unattended restriction digestions or ligations, automatic enzyme reactions and deactivations, storing oocytes at 17°C, storing DNA libraries at the workstation, and more.

Both units come complete with instructions and universal bench top power supply for use anywhere in the world. They are ETL, CSA and CE compliant.
