The Bio-Rad iCycler Thermal PCR Cycler is a compact and versatile device used in molecular biology for amplifying specific DNA sequences. The primary purpose of the iCycler is to perform polymerase chain reactions (PCR), which are used to generate millions of copies of a specific DNA sequence.
The Bio-Rad iCycler is a compact and versatile thermal PCR cycler used in molecular biology for amplifying specific DNA sequences. It performs polymerase chain reactions (PCR) to generate millions of copies of a target DNA sequence. The iCycler precisely controls the temperature of the reaction, allowing for the rapid heating and cooling of the reaction mixture, enabling the DNA polymerase to denature, anneal, and extend the target DNA. This results in a significant increase in the amount of the target DNA, making it easier to study and analyze. The iCycler is user-friendly and provides fast, accurate, and reproducible results, making it a valuable tool for a wide range of applications in the field of molecular biology and genetics.
