Thomas Scientific is Migrating ThermoGrid™ PCR Tubes to NEW Amplifyt™

Thomas Scientific has just completed an extensive project to upgrade our labForce product offering. Our goal was to find the best products for your research, at the best-possible prices. You have our commitment that the new Amplifyt products will meet your research requirements and, quite possibly, surpass your expectations.

Amplifyt™ PCR tubes are equivalent in fit and function to the original
ThermoGrid™ tubes while also providing these additional superior benefits:

Amplifyt tubes

IMPORTANT: While ThermoGrid™ and Amplifyt™ are equivalent in function, caps and tubes from each brand are not
compatible or interchangable. Please use Amplifyt™ caps with Amplifyt™ tubes to ensure optimal sealing.

What you can expect during the transition from Thermogrid to Amplifyt PCR:

  • This transition will occur over the next several months. Each part number will transition at a different time – depending on stock.
  • Below you will see the old ThermoGrid™ parts and the new Thomas Scientific part number for the equivalent Amplifyt™ product will receive in the future.
  • The switch will occur automatically when our stock of any part number is depleted. You will be notified of required changes to your purchase order.
