If your lab has various throughputs required for different projects, then the rapid changing of blocks allows the most efficient and cost-effective use of an instrument.
As the cycling is controlled by the block (processor-controlled blocks) which means high uniformity across each block and fast heating and cooling rates - the things you expect in today's latest generation of thermalcyclers.

The labcycler has a unique system for quick block change. The block can be taken out with a simple handle and replaced by another one. All blocks have a processor which enables identification and data transfer to the labcycler. The temperature measuring circuitry is continuously self-calibrating by precise reference resistors. Its resolution, reproducibility and even its absolute precision is better than 0.02 °C. Because the temperatures are measured by the block itself, each block works identically in any machine.
