The AutoDG Instrument partitions each sample in a 96-well PCR plate into ~20,000 uniform nanoliter-sized droplets in which nucleic acid molecules are randomly distributed. Every droplet serves as an individual PCR reaction in Bio-Rad’s Droplet Digital (ddPCR™) PCR System. After partitioning, the plate is sealed with the PX1™ Plate Sealer, and PCR is run to end point in a thermal cycler. The droplets in each sample can then be analyzed using a QX100 or QX200 Droplet Reader.

  • Eliminates user-to-user variability — creates more consistent droplet counts across users and plates, enabling you to fully exploit the precision of your ddPCR System
  • Minimizes hands-on time — takes less than 5 minutes to load the instrument, and droplet generation requires no supervision

Features and Benefits of the Automated Droplet Generator

Bio-Rad’s Automated Droplet Generator simplifies ddPCR workflow and makes digital PCR scalable and flexible:

  • Guides setup and loading with large, color touch-screen interface and LED lighting
  • Generates droplets for 96 ddPCR reactions in under 45 minutes
  • One AutoDG Instrument can generate sufficient droplets to keep 4–5 droplet readers running continuously
  • Provides operational flexibility:
    • User-definable plate layout with increments of 8 wells
    • HEPA-filtered enclosure reduces the possibility of contamination and allows the system to be placed in any lab environment
    • Compatible with both QX100 and QX200 ddPCR workflows
