Biomeme’s Franklin thermocyclers can complete 5-6 runs before having to recharge. A 40-cycle PCR run takes about 45 mins. You could start by preparing some samples with our M1 Sample Prep, then get the PCR run started and start preparing the next set of samples. In this way, a single person with one device could prepare and PCR approximately 45-56 samples with the three9 in a typical day. Charging takes about 2-3 hours (from 0 to 100% battery), and the device will still work while charging.
