Magnetic Induction Cycler offers faster and more accurate qPCR.
- Wireless connectivity for remote monitoring.
- Rapid heating and cooling; 35 cycles possible in under 25 minutes.
- Rotary based system for unrivaled temperature uniformity and accuracy.
Mic uses a patented magnetic induction technology to heat your samples and fan forced air for cooling. This means fast qPCR results through rapid heating and cooling with 35 cycles possible in under 25 minutes.
All other block-based qPCR cyclers only promise static uniformity, which could lead to inaccurate data, as samples aren’t heated and cooled at the same rate.
You might think this level of accuracy requires constant calibration, but you don’t need to calibrate Mic – ever.
Mic takes up less space on the bench than your lab book. And weighing in at just 2 kg, this is the most portable compact qPCR cycler on the market.
Multiple Mics can be operated from one workstation so 48 becomes 96, and 96 becomes 192. Bluetooth technology means fewer cables too. With an easy user interface that can integrate seamlessly with the Myra pipeting robot. Just setup, run, and analyse all in one location.

Whats the improvemnt with using rotary based format?
Reproducibility across multiple runs on Mic is better than within a
single 96 or 384 well run on many cyclers.
To achieve this level of precision, the Mic real-time cycler incorporates a unique spinning aluminium rotor which has unsurpassed temperature uniformity during both dynamic and static operations.
All other block-based real-time cyclers only promise static uniformity, which could lead to variability as samples aren’t heated and cooled at the same rate.
Why is Magnetic induction heat source prefered over peltier blocks?
Mic uses a patented magnetic induction technology to heat samples and fan forced air for cooling. This means fast qPCR results in less than 25 min for 35 cycles.
Back that up with a robust optical system that reads all channels simultaneously and running multichannel assays has never been quicker.
Why is it claimed that the MIC doesnt drift and needs no calibration service?
The Mic qPCR cycler is available in either 2 or 4 channel models. Each channel uses an independent high intensity LED, photodetector and filter set combining together to give unparalleled detection performance.
With a fixed optical path and no moving parts there is never any optical alignment or calibration required. Even better is that no reference dyes or crosstalk compensation is required.
We are used to 96 or 384 well runs, why settle with only 48 wells with the MIC?
Since data between runs and different MIC machines are reproducible, data sets can be seamlessly combined using our Project analysis software at anytime.
Instruments can communicate via Bluetooth® or USB cable and you can connect as many as ten instruments to one PC. This means up to 480 samples can be analysed simultaneously.
We avoid wireless connectivity to NOT lose data through disconnections.
Never lose data through disconnections again. Every Mic has built in data storage to keep your data safe even if the PC is disconnected. Recovery is automatic as soon as the connection is restored.
Naturally you want to be up and running as quickly as possible so installation has been made plug-and-play. It’s as simple as installing the software and starting your first run.
The software is free, but can it interpret the data to my satisfaction?
By automating the analysis process we eliminate the need to export data to third party software. All of the statistics are included ready for publication.
Project based analysis lets you combine multiple runs into one analysis. Comparing samples between multiple runs or even multiple instruments is now effortless.
- Relative Quantification
- Absolute Quantification
- Melt / Allelic Discrimination
- High Resolution Melting
Pipetting work is very tedious, especially with strip tubes!
Myra introduces a perfectly seamless workflow between the Myra liquid handling system and Mic qPCR cycler.
One setup only – configure your Mic qPCR run, tell Myra where your tubes are and watch Myra do the pipetting for you. Run files for Mic are automatically generated at the end so no need to export or import sample names, assays, thermal profiles or analysis settings.
