<< but last week, one of these machines broke down and apparently the 
 cooling system was damaged. abi told us that we have to send it in: 
 you can guess what that will cost. 
 just for fun i tested the other two machines also: one of these also 
 failed the chiller test. These machines cool noticably slower.
 machines are between 2-4 years old.
Our third party service group repairs the ABI cyclers for a lower cost than
ABI.  The older DNA cyclers sometimes require refrigeration, sometimes
circulation repairs.  ABI does sell a service manual for each of their
instruments so your service people can repair and recalibrate if needed.
