Electrophoresis Apparatus


Edvotek™ electrophoresis equipment is designed with the teaching classroom in mind. Innovative gel trays and rubber end caps make pouring gels quick and easy. The special shape of the gel tray ensures that the experiment is set up properly. Most importantly, the electrophoresis equipment is durable enough to be used daily. All of the Edvotek electrophoresis equipment is backed by a lifetime warranty and technical support.

Electrophoresis Power Supplies


The Edvotek line of electrophoresis power supplies includes the EVT 300 Dual Power Supply and the TetraSource Power Supply that features an easy-to-use, fully programmable interface for setting voltage, current or timer control with each parameter displayed in real-time. 

PCR Thermal Cyclers


The Edvotek EdvoCycler™ and MegaCycler™ are easy-to-use classroom PCR machines. The vivid LCD screen displays all program parameters on a single page. A heated lid makes operation a snap — no mineral oil required. The heat blocks hold 25 or 49 0.2mL PCR samples depending upon which model you choose. For your convenience, both the EdvoCycler and the MegaCycler come pre-programmed with all of the Edvotek PCR protocols. However, with all of the extra memory slots, it's easy to create your own PCR protocols.

The Edvotek thermal cyclers are proudly made in the United States and backed by a two-year warranty.

Features include:

  • Heated lid with magnetic latch
  • Pre-programmed Edvotek PCR protocols
  • Extra memory slots for your PCR protocols
  • Vivid 7-line LCD screen that displays real-time program information
  • Stand-alone machine — no PC required!
  • Temperature range: 4°C to 99°C
  • Maximum ramp rate: 3°C/sec
  • Dimensions: 16 x 8.5 x 7in.
