The Opentrons Thermocycler Module GEN2 is a fully automated on-deck thermocycler, providing hands-free PCR in a 96-well plate format. Compatible with Opentrons hardware and software to allow for fully automated PCR reaction setup and thermocycling on your Opentrons robot. The heated lid and disposable seal fit tightly over the plate, ensuring efficient sample heating and minimal evaporation.
Opentrons GEN2 Thermocycler Seals are adhesive-backed Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) seals designed for use with the fully-automated Opentrons GEN2 Thermocycler.

We recommend using Opentrons Tough PCR Plates with the Opentrons Thermocycler Modules, as they are full-skirted and have a rigid polycarbonate frame with thin-walled polypropylene wells. The plate lift mechanism that releases the plate from the Thermocycler after cycling engages with the edges of full-skirted PCR plate so the plate can be easily removed. The rigid frame of the PCR plate is compatible with a gripper, prevents the plate from warping, and keeps the plate secure in the block when the lid opens.
