Alpha units are interchangeable reaction modules available in a variety of formats to accommodate standard tubes and plates and high-density microplates.
Every thermal cycler in the DNA Engine family (the DNA Engine, DNA Engine Dyad, Dyad Disciple, and DNA Engine Tetrad 2 cyclers) accepts all interchangeable Alpha units. Changing an Alpha unit takes less than 10 seconds, with no tools required. The temperature accuracy specifications of Alpha blocks ensure consistent results experiment-to-experiment and cycler-to-cycler.
