Rapi:chip™ was developed from the understanding of the challenges in routine PCR. We found the protocols duration could be dramatically reduced when efficient heat transfer is made during the thermal cycling process. By designing a unique 3-dimensional polymer chip where the bottom surface is made of a thin film and precisely bonded with a polymer body, ultra-fast thermal cycling became possible.
Rapi:chip™ is supplied in two formats. The QPCR version of the chip has 10 wells and the top of each well is open for real-time fluorescence measurement.
Rapi:chip/16™ is a version t which can accommodate 16 samples and is ideal for amplification of standard PCR. It does not have the capability for analysis of a fluorescence signal.
1 & 5. Wings - These parts are used for easy handling with fingers or tweezers.
2. Printed Well Numbers - The Well numbers are printed on the upper surface of the chip for easy identification.
3 & 4. Apertures - Pipette tips fit in these apertures so that sample and reagent can be loaded or collected easily.

STEP 1. Prepare sample according to suggested protocol. Volume of sample mixture should be 10μl.
STEP 2. Using micropipette, aspirate prepared sample mixture (10μl).
STEP 3. Place pipette tip into the inlet hole of Rapi:chip™ and dispense whole volume of aspirated sample.
STEP 4. Seal entire holes using enclosed sealing tape. Scrub the surface of sealed area to secure sealing.
