Soellex® High Throughput PCR Thermal Cycler
Thermal Cycle 230,400 Data Points in a Single Process Run
The Soellex is an ultra high throughput end-point polymerase chain reaction (PCR) thermal cycler leveraging a 3-chamber water bath. The heating system in the Soellex tightly controls the temperature throughout the water bath delivering efficient and rapid energy transfer from the water, through the Array Tape® and to your samples.
Thermal Cycle 230,400 Data Points Simultaneously
The Soellex is capable of simultaneously processing up to three spools of Array Tape, each with two hundred 384-well arrays per spool. Therefore, the Soellex has the potential to thermal cycle between 76,800 and 230,400 reaction wells in a single process run.
Intuitive Thermal Cycler User Interface
The touch screen user interface is simple, yet feature rich, providing the control necessary to process requirements. It includes:
- Intuitive run progress and monitoring feedback screen
- Thermal cycling protocol programming wizard
- Customizable alarms and warnings
- Remote computer monitoring/notification
- Reports generation and log file reviewer
- And more!
High Throughput Energy Savings
High throughput processing of up to 230,400 samples in Array Tape requires one Soellex water bath - replacing the 18 water baths (32 plate capacity) or 150 block heaters required for microplates. These energy and space saving benefits put high throughput laboratories well on their way to achieving significantly greener, more environmentally sound operations.
Common End Point PCR Chemistries
Versatile Microplate System Design
The Soellex system design is versatile and supports PCR processing in traditional microtiter plates as well as in Array Tape. The Soellex can process up to 152 microplates (384-well, 11 mm tall) in a single run.
Decrease Thermal Cycling Times
Array Tape allows miniaturization of the reaction, has thin walls and low thermal mass (7 times less than a microplate) enabling rapid temperature changes contributing to shorter cycle times and improved results. Laboratory scientists who have experienced nonspecific binding issues recognize sharp temperature changes in Array Tape as a key advantage.
