Partition & amplify

2H 10 mins

Step 2.1 – Partition

Transfer chips to the Geode and launch the Crystal Digital PCR™ program. Up to 20,000 (Opal chip) or 30,000 (Sapphire chip) droplets are generated from each sample using contactless fluid injection.
The Geode can process 1-3 chips and 1-12 samples/run (Sapphire chips) and 1-48 samples/run (Opal chips).

Step 2.2 – Amplify

PCR amplification occurs immediately following droplet crystal generation.

The personnel can simply place the Sapphire or Opal chips in the Geode and walk away for the duration of the selected Crystal Digital PCR™ program.
