The problem is Biometra's machine are quite expensive, we are wondering whether any other companies making tri-block or twin-block PCR machine. Any information or personal experience on this will be very helpful for us and will be very much appreciated.
Our lab has a Gradient Robocycler, which can be used to sample a
gradient of annealing temperatures at the the same time.  It cost a
bit ($5800) but it is licensed for PCR.
  The gradient is hard to beat, it's worked quite well for me.
