Laird Offers Improved Revenue Potential and More Reliable Performance with New Power Cycling Thermoelectric Modules

October 19, 2015, 8:00 pm

(LRD: London) announces the release of a new line of Power Cycling Thermoelectric Modules designed to improve revenue possibilities and performance reliability.

Standard Thermoelectric Modules (TEMs) are primarily designed to deliver steady cooling and cannot withstand repeated thermal cycling between hot and cold temperatures required by molecular diagnostic equipment used in places like hospitals and medical research laboratories.

As a result, testing labs can experience downtime for repairs causing lost revenue for the labs as well as equipment manufacturers that supply consumable products, like reagents, used during the testing process.

Laird’s new Power Cycling (PC) Series is constructed with a unique, proprietary thermally conductive "soft layer" that absorbs mechanical stresses caused by ramp rates set at hot and cold temperatures.

"As a result, Laird can offer what very few others can," explains Senior Vice President of Laird’s Engineered Thermal Systems, Anders Kottenauer. He adds that, "The new line of Power Cycling TEMs has been proven to perform reliably for more than 600,000 temperature cycles. That’s well beyond the industry standard and a testament to the hard work of our engineering team."

With that kind of reliable performance the working lifespans of molecular diagnostic equipment and burn-in chip test sockets is increased. This means more molecular diagnostic tests can be performed each year which allows for increased output and maximizing revenue potential.  CLICK HERE
