Block dimensions are L95mm x W75mm x H50mm and made from solid anodised aluminium. The solid construction gives rapid heat transfer and therefore rapid block heat-up when used in a Ratek dry block heater. Temperature uniformity is excellent and all blocks are supplied with a thermometer hole for reference. Customised blocks are also available upon request if a standard block is unsuitable, these blocks are available in 50mm, 80mm and 100mm depths to suit a wide range of applications. Blocks to hold 96-well plates can also be supplied.
When used in conjunction with a Dry Block Heater applications include the preservation of samples and reaction, enzyme digestions, enzyme activity studies, DNA amplification, incubation and activation of cultures, melting/boiling points and nucleid acid hybridisations.
