On the QuantStudio 12K Flex system, do I have to change the heated cover when changing the block? Product FAQ

Answer

Yes. You will need to match all the accessories (heated cover and plate adapter) to the block you have installed. For the QuantStudio 12K Flex system, the 96-Standard and 96-Fast blocks use the same heated cover. The 384-well and TaqMan Array Card block also use the same heated cover. The OpenArray block uses it own separate heated cover.

What are some of the main differences between Applied Biosystems Real-Time PCR Systems, like the 7500, 7900HT, 7700 or 7000 Sequence Detection System instruments? Product FAQ

Answer

The systems most often vary by the light source and filter sets. The 7000, 7300, 7500, and 7500 Fast systems utilize a halogen lamp as the excitation source and emission filters to detect the emission fluorescence. The 7000 and 7300 systems both have one excitation and four emission filters, while the 7500 and 7500 Fast systems have five excitation and five emission filters. Five excitation and five emission filters allow the 7500 and 7500 Fast systems to detect dyes in the far red range. The 7700 and 7900HT systems utilize an argon ion laser as the excitation source and the instrument scans across all wavelengths between 520 nm to 610 nm.

The 7500, 7500 Fast and 7900HT systems also offers the ability to upgrade to the Fast chemistry; typical real-time runs take about 30-45 minutes.

In addition, the 7900HT system offers further high throughput options such as a 384-well block and a TaqMan Low Density Array Upgrade as well as a Zymark Twister Automation Accessory that will robotically load plates on the instrument.

For further information please speak with your local Life Technologies sales representative.

What is the Attune NxT Autosampler? Product FAQ

Answer

The Attune NxT Autosampler, an optional accessory for the Attune NxT Acoustic Focusing Cytometer, enables rapid processing of up to 384 samples. It has broad compatibility with different plate formats, both 96- and 384-well plates. It has an intelligent probe designed to minimize clogging and carryover (<0.5%) and to prevent damage to the instrument. It mixes by aspiration rather than shaking to ensure homogeneity of the sample and maintain cell viability. Is performs automated cleaning as part of the shutdown process of the Attune NxT Cytometer. It provides consistent data regardless of sampling method (tube vs. plate) and collection rate.
