We have an Eppendorf gradient mastercycler. I like the machine, it
seems to work well, is speedy and has a very flexible block that
accomodates different sizes of tubes. Programming is not too bad but
the learning curve was rather steep, IMHO. I cannot compare to the
hybaid as I haven't used the latter. If you have specific questions
about the mastercycler, feel free to contact me.
