The Wafergen SmartChip System is a highly flexible nanoliter qPCR instrument. The system is based on aluminum chips that contain a grod of 72x72 nanowells. Each well can hold up to 150ul of volume. The system itself is composed of two halves: a robot for loading the chips and a PCR machine for cycling and scanning the chips.

The Wafergen SmartChip System is a highly flexible nanoliter qPCR instrument. The system is based on aluminum chips that contain a grod of 72x72 nanowells. Each well can hold up to 150ul of volume. The system itself is composed of two halves: a robot for loading the chips and a PCR machine for cycling and scanning the chips.

REACTION SETUP

Wafergen reactions come in two flavors: prefilled arrays and "MyDesign". Prefilled arrays have specific primer sets laid out across the nanowells. MyDesign arrays are filled in two steps: cDNA followed by primers. Primers and cDNA are filled from specific 384 well plates in master mix already diluted to 1x.
