The Prime Elite is programmed via a 5.7” colour VGA LCD touch screen using simple and intuitive software. Programs and run progress can be viewed as a temperature/step graphical display, allowing the user to readily check the status or position within a run. Files can be saved with user names and/or keywords which allows for rapid searching and retrieval. A USB port on the front of the unit allows transfer of files to and from a USB memory stick and for the easy update of instrument software.

The thermal block incorporates the very latest in Peltier design featuring the Thermal Energy Recovery ® System (TERS ). This allows the Prime Elite to achieve ramp rates of up to 5ºC/s and is also energy saving, resulting in reduced running costs.

The Prime Elite can be used as a stand-alone unit or, for high-throughput applications, to control up to three additional Satellite units via USB connections. Satellite units can also be remotely controlled from a PC using the Techne Workbench software. Programs and temperature files are saved as text files for integration into a LIMS System.
