Streamline your PCR reaction setup

The XT Starter PCR96 System keeps samples at a uniform temperature of 2°C for 4 hours - without ice or electricity. XT Starter consists of the XT foam base, an XT Cooling Core and a CoolRack® PCR module that can hold a 96 well PCR plate, PCR tube strips or individual 0.2 ml tubes. The XT Starter M-PCR System instead has a CoolRack M-PCR module that holds 12 1.5 mL or 2.0 mL microcentrifuge tubes and 6 rows of PCR tube strips.


The low profile and small footprint make it ideal for use in the hood. With the built-in 1-8º C Temperature Indicator you can see the actual temperature while working.

To assemble, simply pre-freeze the XT Cooling Core in a -20°C cooler until frozen.  When ready to use, rest the XT Cooling Core on the bench until the Temperature Indicator registers 1°C (approximately 10 minutes). Then insert the XT Cooling Core into the XT Holder and place a CoolRack or CoolSink sample module on top.

To extend the cooling duration, keep an additional XT Cooling Core in the freezer and replace the Core when temparature starts to rise. 

XT Starter also accommodates other CoolRack and CoolSink sample modules, making it a versatile and flexible tool for a variety of benchtop cooling applications.
