This is an example of a PCR machine built to handle 96 well plates.

Notice this machine can control four 96 well plates independently.

Figure 1. DNA Engine Tetrad allows the user to control four different 96 well plates for cycle sequencing for a total of 384 reactions.

Figure 2. Close up of an empty 96 well holder.

Figure 3. One of the four 96 well holders with a rack inserted. Note that the lids for these reaction wells have been removed.
