Are you still unfamiliar with a laboratory tool called Thermal Cycler? Well, from now on you should know about this tool, because this tool is one of the tools that helps in the PCR test process that we usually do to find out whether we are reactive and positive or not for the coronavirus. This tool has several other functions and is actually very commonly used in laboratories.
Thermal Cycler or can also be called Thermocycler, DNA Amplifier, or PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) machine is used to multiply and amplify DNA segments through PCR. Thermal Cycler can also be used in facilitating temperature-sensitive reactions, where the temperature can be increased or decreased, is it too hot or too cold, and also, tests the presence of restriction enzyme reactions (enzymes that cut DNA molecules) and can provide accurate diagnostic results. Rapid detection of a disease when performing a PCR test.
Thermal Cycler has a thermal block with holes where tubes holding the reaction mixtures can be inserted and also equipped with a heated lid that presses against the lids of the reaction tubes. The lids of the reaction tubes could prevent the condensation of water from the reaction mixtures on the insides of the lids.
How to use the Thermal Cycler is also very easy, you just need to insert a test tube containing the reagents, after it is inserted we just need to control the temperature by raising or lowering the temperature according to the program provisions that have been set before, and then we just have to wait for the process to occur. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and waiting for the results of the diagnosis. This process does not take longer, so we can quickly get the results of the diagnosis.
