The Xdrop™ system

Samplix has developed a complete system for target enrichment and universal amplification and we offer the complete range of reagents, cartridges and accessories for use with your Xdrop™ instrument.

Xdrop™ is very easy to install and intuitive to work with. Nonetheless, to ensure you get the most out of your Xdrop™ purchase, our Field Application Scientists will travel to your lab and set up the entire system and workflow for you. We will provide on-site hands-on training of lab personnel as part of our standard Xdrop™ installation service.

Xdrop™ Instrument

The Xdrop™ instrument is a droplet generator that can produce droplets with use of specific microfluidics dPCR and dMDA cartrides. It is operated from the touch screen and droplet generation is fully automated. The choice of cartridge determines the size and properties of the droplets. A white gasket (rubber cover) provides an air-tight seal between the instrument and cartridge during operation.

Cartridges

Samplix has developed advanced microfluidics easy-to-use Xdrop™ cartridges for droplet generation in the Xdrop™ instrument.

  

Droplet PCR (dPCR) cartridge

This cartridge is used for target enrichment

We highly recommend including a positive control when setting up new targets

  • Run 8 samples simultaneously or individually
  • 40 minutes of droplet generation time
  • Package includes 1 pcs of single-use gasket (rubber cover) per cartridge

Important note: please order additional single-use gaskets to avoid cross-contamination of samples if less than 8 samples are used per run!

If cartridges are stored between runs, the unused sample lines can be protected using the storage film.

Two package sizes are available:

  • 2 cartridges including 2 gaskets – equivalent of 16 samples
  • 6 cartridges including 6 gaskets – equivalent of 48 samples

Manuals for the enrichment (dPCR) and universal amplification (dMDA) can be found here

Droplet MDA (dMDA) cartridge

This cartridge is used for universal amplification

We highly recommend including a negative control with each amplification run 

  • Run 8 samples simultaneously or individually
  • 40 seconds of droplet generation time
  • Package includes 1 pcs of single-use gasket (rubber cover) per cartridge

Important note: please order additional single-use gaskets to avoid cross-contamination of samples if less than 8 samples are used per run!

If cartridges are stored between runs, the unused sample lines can be protected using the storage film.

Two package sizes are available:

  • 2 cartridges including 2 gaskets – equivalent of 16 samples
  • 6 cartridges including 6 gaskets – equivalent of 48 samples
