Eppendorf Mastercycler® X50 wins German Design Award 2018
Oct 27 2017 Comments 0
Amplifying nucleic acids for further downstream processing is a cornerstone of modern molecular biology and medical research. This temperature dependent process needs utmost precision in temperature control. At the same time, the procedure needs to be as fast as possible, i.e. temperature changes need to be facilitated at high speeds.
The Mastercycler X50 from Eppendorf combines the capabilities of high speed (Heating of 10°C/s) with utmost precision (±0.15°C). High speeds, especially in cooling, can be supported by large heat sinks and strong ventilation. However, large footprints and strong ventilation noises need to be avoided in molecular biology labs. Thus, product design features like ventilating from front to back (and not to the sides where other instruments can be placed) and including powerful heat sinks in small footprints have to be brought to perfection.
The German Design Award 2018 acknowledges and honours Eppendorf’s strive for perfection in designing the Mastercycler X50. The highly esteemed and independent jury values unique design trends and pioneering contributions to the product design landscape.
