Laird Technologies to Demonstrate New High-Performance PowerCycler at Pittcon 2013

St. Louis, Missouri, USA- Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced it will demonstrate a new reference design for a compact PCR thermal cycler for field-level DNA amplification at Pittcon 2013. The event will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, March 17-21, 2013. Laird Technologies will exhibit at booth #3553.

The Laird PowerCycler is designed to provide small, single-well systems with rapid, programmable control to expedite the amplification process and enable point-of-service systems. The compact thermal cycler design is capable of producing up to a 25°C per second temperature ramp in a 50 µL sample, which is five times faster than standard cyclers. The compact thermal cycler reference design features the new MA8000 series of thin-film thermoelectric arrays that offer high heat flux capacity, robust mechanical design and source-matched heat flux density for ease of integration into thermal cycling platforms.

Laird’s Thermal Management Solutions group will also showcase the Power Cool Series of thermoelectric assemblies and the PR-59 temperature controller for precise temperature stabilization of medical diagnostics, analytical instrumentation and photonics laser systems.

The PowerCool Series are highly-efficient, high-performance thermoelectric assemblies with a wide product breadth and diverse heat transfer mechanisms. The PR-59 temperature controller is designed to control thermoelectric assemblies with precise temperature stability and features a Graphical User Interface (GUI).

“Medical and analytical instruments require compact thermal management solutions with high-performance and high-reliability,” said Andrew Dereka, Product Manager. “Pittcon presents an excellent opportunity for Laird to demonstrate its industry-leading thermal management products and capabilities to the laboratory and medical sciences markets.”
