These are designed thermal blocks for positioning pipette tips. They were designed in order to develop reactions in pipette tips. An example of how to do thermal cycling on a LabBot using LabAutoBox is demonstrated here.

The system includes:
    1. Mechanical assembly for insulation
    2. Milled aluminum block
    3. Heaters and temperature assembly
    4. Optional: control electronics, command line software and power supply
    5. Optional: thermal block plate
