Modern Thermoelectrics Designed for Point of Care Testing (POCT)




Point of care testing enables medical staff to deliver real-time test results within an hour. To ensure accuracy and long operational life of test devices, thermoelectric coolers are used to provide precise temperature control. Point-of-care PCR testing devices must handle hundreds of thousands of thermal cycles throughout its life with minimal degradation to the thermoelectric cooler. Our PowerCycling PCX Series thermoelectric cooler features a unique construction that is tested to survive in long term thermal cycling applications. 



Next-Generation Thermoelectrics for Real-time PCR




PCR Thermal Cyclers utilize Peltier technology to precisely manage set point temperatures and ramp rates. Standard thermoelectric coolers cannot withstand the mechanical stresses induced by rapid temperature changes in these environments. The enhanced PowerCycling PCX Series from Laird Thermal Systems offers precise temperature control at faster ramp rates to significantly improve and speed up PCR testing. 



Online Thermoelectric Modelling Tool for PCR Design Engineers


Laird Thermal Systems has launched an online simulation tool for PCR thermal cycling applications. Thermoelectric coolers produced for thermal cycling, such as the PowerCycling PCX Series, are utilised for Real-Time PCR to precisely temperature control DNA amplification to three temperature set points. Constructed with next-generation thermoelectric material, the series offers faster ramp rates and higher reliability than conventional thermoelectric coolers to notably extend field use of molecular diagnostic devices.
