I have been warned by some people that these Thermolyne thermocyclers use
another heating method (Peltier elements) than the PE cyclers, and that
these Peltier elements have a very short lifespan. I don't know if this
was thoroughly tested, but I think it's worth trying to get some more
information about this.

Good luck with it!
