Soellex® Thermal Cycler
Thermal Cycle 230,400 data points in a single process run
The Soellex® is an ultra high throughput PCR thermal cycler using a 3-chamber water bath optimized for the Array Tape™ platform. The heating system in the Soellex® tightly controls the temperature throughout the water column 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 thermally cycle 230,400 reaction wells in a single process run.
Intuitive User Interface
The touch screen user interface is simple yet feature rich allowing you the control necessary to meet your 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!
Active Recipe Screen
High throughput processing of up to 230,000 samples in Array Tape™ requires one Soellex® water bath - replacing the 18 water baths or 150 block heaters required for microplates. Standing alone, these energy and space saving benefits put high throughput laboratories well on their way to achieving significantly greener, more environmentally sound operations.
The Soellex® supports all common endpoint PCR chemistries including but not limited to TaqMan™, InvaderPLUS™ and KASPar™.
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 152 384-well microplates (11 mm tall) at one time.
Decreasing Thermal Cycling Times
Array Tape™ allows miniaturization of the reaction, has thin walls and low thermal mass (7 times less than a microplate) each 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.
