The Eppendorf PCR-Coolers are compact, easy-to-use and provide a contamination-free way to prepare your PCR reactions. Simply “charge-up” by placing the PCR-Cooler in a -20°C freezer for at least 2 hours. The low-profile, benchtop device will cool 0.2mL or 0.5mL tubes at temperatures between 0°C and 7°C for approximately two hours (at an ambient temperature of 22°C). It also accommodates 96-well PCR plates and strips.
When the temperature exceeds 7°C, the cooler changes color — purple to pink or dark blue to light blue — indicating that the upper temperature limit has been reached. A special contour design prevents freezing of samples.
Clean with a mild detergent or with an alcohol-based disinfectant. Do not use above 65°C.
• Ideal alternative to ice baths
• Color changes when temperature exceeds 7°C
