New Flexi-block Accessory from Techne Delivers New Efficiency in Sample Heating
Staffordshire, UK: Techne, a Bibby Scientific brand, has launched its latest offering to assist biological laboratories tasked with heating biological or chemical laboratory samples. The new Flexi-block accessory can heat almost any sample from ambient temperature up to 200°C, including those stored in 0.2ml, 0.5ml, 2.0ml and 5.0ml micro tubes and any diameter test-tube, vial, cuvette or micro plate. This flexibility means laboratories can achieve new levels of efficiency, as researchers are able to heat any sample, regardless of container or type, without having to change or recalibrate instruments.
The Flexi-block’s broad range is made possible by the incorporation of 1.5ml diameter autoclaveable beads. Manufactured from high density ceramic, these exhibit high mechanical strength and are an excellent thermal transfer medium. This outstanding flexibility eliminates the traditional limitation of aluminium heating blocks - their specificity to a particular type of tube, multi-well plate or glass vial.
Flexi-block is unique, economically priced and come in two variations: double-width or a larger triple-width version for high throughput heating and incubating applications as well as sensitive analytical procedures. Flexi-block brings a new dimension to Dri-block® heating applications and is compatible with any 2 or 3 block Techne® Dri-block® heater.
