Upgrade to a new format, the Microfluidic Chip!

 

  • Design is optimized for reducing the time for gene amplification.
  • Sample is loaded in flat and wide chamber so that heat is efficiently delivered to the sample.
  • Well volume is 10μl only, which helps fast heating and cooling.
  • Bottom surface of chip is made of thin film for efficient heat transfer.
  • Contamination free and transformation free.
  • Options are available for thermal cycling and real-time analysis.


A New PCR concept was born when precision molding technology met film bonding know how.

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.


Options are available for both thermal cycling and real-time PCR analysis.

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.

HOW TO LOAD SAMPLES

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.
