Oils required for conducting digital PCR experiments include Droplet Generation Oils and Droplet Reader Oil.
Droplet Generation Oils are used to create sample-in-oil droplets required for Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR), and different formulations are available for both probe and EvaGreen detection chemistries.
Droplet Generation Oils Optimized for Probe Applications
- Droplet Generation Oil for Probes — for use with the QX200/QX100 Droplet Generator: 70 ml (10 x 7 ml) (1863005)
- Automated Droplet Generation Oil for Probes — for use with the Automated Droplet Generator (AutoDG): 140 ml (1864110)
Droplet Generation Oil for Probes and Automated Droplet Generation Oil for Probes are compatible with the digital PCR supermixes and kits below:
Droplet Generation Oils Optimized for EvaGreen Applications
- QX200 Droplet Generation Oil — for use with the QX200 Droplet Generator: 14 ml (2 x 7 ml) (1864005) or
70 ml (10 x 7 ml) (1864006)
- AutoDG Oil for EvaGreen — for use with the Automated Droplet Generator: 140 ml (1864112)
For use exclusively with the QX200 ddPCR EvaGreen Supermix.
Droplet Reader Oil is used during the droplet analysis step of the digital PCR workflow on the QX200/QX100 Droplet Reader.
ddPCR Droplet Reader Oil is specifically formulated to work with the droplet reader in the QX200/QX100 and QX200 AutoDG Droplet Digital PCR Systems.
All Droplet Generation and Droplet Reader Oils are optimized for use with consumables for Droplet Digital PCR Systems.
