Digital PCR Reagents and Chips Compatible with the Naica® System

Digital PCR workflows do not need to be challenging. Stilla Technologies cutting-edge patented microfluidic innovation integrates the Crystal Digital PCR™ workflow into a single consumable. Combined with specially-formulated naica® PCR MIX reagents, researchers get maximized sensitivity and flexible throughput with simple reaction assembly and minimal hands-on time.

Crystal Digital PCR™ Chip Consumables

Stilla offers two types of easy-to-use Crystal Digital PCR™ chip consumables. Depending on your individual digital PCR workflow needs, select the optimal chip type for your application. After sample preparation, each chip requires just a single pipetting step before being loaded into the naica® system for partitioning, PCR amplification, and sample read-out.

Ruby Chip

For higher throughput applications, the Ruby Chip offers the analysis of up to 48 samples per run. The Ruby Chip is also compatible with integration to automated liquid handling equipment.

Crystal Digital PCR™ Reagents

Specially-formulated naica® PCR MIX reagents ensure optimal performance for Crystal Digital PCR™.

naica® multiplex PCR MIX (TaqMan® compatible)

The naica® multiplex PCR MIX is a ready-to-use two-component solution specially formulated for optimal TaqMan® fluorescent probe-based Crystal Digital PCR™ and high multiplexing capacity.

  • The stably incorporated internal blue channel reference dye facilitates reaction assembly while ensuring reliable partition detection.
  • The unique 10X concentration liberates a reaction volume that can instead be utilized by additional sample input, probes, or primers, which increases multiplexing capacity and provides superior detection sensitivity for low concentration samples and rare targets.
