Thermocycling with TEC Controllers

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for fast and reliable PCR tests increased massively. The Meerstetter TEC Controllers can autonomously drive the temperature curves of the reactants typical for the polymerase chain reaction (PCR).

To make implementation easier for you, we have prepared a white paper. This paper addresses system integrator engineers and developers, that are building a PCR test apparatus or any other device, that periodically performs temperature curves, which we call thermocycling.

Therefore, this paper describes how temperature profiles for thermocycling are created and executed with a Meerstetter TEC Controller. So-called "Lookup Tables" (LUT) are used for this purpose. LUT are like a step-by-step recipe with operations which the TEC Controller processes and thus generates the desired temperature curve.

With this whitepaper we help you to get your own trusted product quickly and reliably. If you have any problems, please contact our excellent support staff with any questions, need for further assistance and feedback.
