DG8 Cartridges are intended for use with the QX200™/QX100™ Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR™) Systems and enable droplet preparation of up to eight samples at a time.
Droplet generation takes approximately 2 minutes for each set of eight samples (30 minutes for a 96-well plate). All eight sample wells in the DG8 Cartridge must contain sample (or 1x buffer control), and all eight oil wells must contain Droplet Generation Oil.
DG8 Gaskets are used for sealing DG8 Cartridges and are provided with the QX200 Droplet Generator.
Packaging Options for DG8 Cartridges and Gaskets
- DG8 Cartridges (pkg of 24): (1864008)
- DG8 Gaskets (pkg of 24): (1863009)
- DG8 Cartridges and Gaskets (5 pkg of 24 each): (1864007)
The DG8 Cartridge Holder (1863051) is required for positioning and holding the cartridge and is provided with the QX200 Droplet Generator.
DG32 Cartridges come ready to use with gaskets and are used to mix sample and oil to generate nanoliter-sized PCR reaction droplets in a 96-well plate format specifically for use with the Automated Droplet Generator/QX200™ AutoDG™ Droplet Digital™ PCR System:
- For 10 x 96-well ddPCR plates (pkg of 30): (1864108)
- For 20 x 96-well ddPCR plates (pkg of 60): (1864109)
Designed and validated for Bio-Rad's Droplet Digital PCR workflow, ddPCR 96-Well Plates are optimized for maximum ddPCR performance. Ultrathin-wall polypropylene construction enables maximal thermal transfer. Robust polycarbonate frame design is highly resistant against warping and torque.
All cartridges require the use of oils during droplet generation. Learn more about Droplet Digital PCR Oils.
