MJ's are good, but they tell me they're a little backlogged on certain
models. Expect a month delay if you order one. What I especially liked
about the MJ I used was its ease of programming. The Thermolyne we have
now is a bear to program, and not very flexible.
We just ordered a cycler from Ericomp; its specs seem comparable to MJ's,
it's Peltier-driven, and we got two independent blocks with heated lids
for a good price (less than MJ). They also tell me they;ve been making
cyclers fro about as long as Perkin Elmer. I don't have their address
handy, but they advertise in Biotechniques.
