In our lab we are using the Eppendorf Mastercycler since about 3 years. We=
are happy with it, two independant blocks are nice for research work.
We use it routinely for PCR methods like RT-PCR, fingerprinting and=
amplification of cDNA libraries.
Advantages: two blocks, rather fast, works with 0.5 ml tubes.
Disadvantages: heatable lid works only nice with more than 30 micro litres.
