The Naica system is For Research Use Only. However, depending on the legislation of your country, you may be able to use the Naica system for diagnostics purposes. Please check with your national Health Authority whether this is the case.
No, the Naica system is not currently marked CE-IVD, but we are working on it!
Yes, the Geode and the Prism3 are both CE-marked.
The Naica system is a versatile system, which you can use to perform digital PCR and one-step RT-PCR. You can use as starting material DNA, RNA, cells or anything else! Please contact us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org (North America) so we may help you set up experiments. Lastly, using our Sapphire chips, you can [...]
You may analyze up to 12 samples per run per Geode using our Sapphire chips.
The Prism3 has three detection channels, which can be used to reliably quantify three different targets. However, you can increase the multiplexing capacity by grouping targets and detect them using one detection channel, if your application allows such detection strategy.
If equipped with a single Geode and a Prism3, you may perform up to 4 runs per day, meaning you can analyze up to 48 samples. Since the combined partitioning/ thermocycling step performed by the Geode is the bottleneck, you can purchase additional Geodes to increase throughput, doubling the number of samples analyzed per [...]
Please make sure the Geode hot plate remains free of dust, by cleaning it using a keyboard air spray. When the Naica Geode is not in use, it is recommended to lower the lid without clamping the handle. Leaving the lid unclamped will avoid damage to the gasket and ensure its optimal performance. For [...]
Block uniformity of the Geode is +/- 1.0°C at 72°C.
The Geode can be operated from +10°C to 95°C.
