Thirty Years of Thermal Cycler
Amazing scientific advancements have been made using Applied Biosystems thermal cyclers, from expanding our knowledge of human evolution, to sequencing human and many other genomes, to understanding genetic variation and drug efficacy in human disease research. We’ve been designing and manufacturing thermal cyclers since the first commercial thermal cycler, the TC1, in 1987. Over the decades we have continued to innovate, introducing many advances in block technology and intuitive graphical user interfaces. These innovations have made our customers’ research and scientific advancements possible—we’ve been honored to be part of your journey.
