The Xdrop® system

Droplet technology made easy

We offer the complete range of reagents, cartridges and accessories together with your Xdrop instrument. 

Customer support and training is included as part of our standard Xdrop installation service. 

The Xdrop Instrument

The Xdrop instrument is a droplet generator that can produce droplets with use of specific microfluidics double emulsion and single emulsion cartridges. It is operated from the touch screen and droplet generation is fully automated. The choice of cartridge determines the size and properties of the droplet. In this way samples can be partitioned in droplets as standalone compartments for reactions.

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.

  

Double emulsions cartridge

[called dPCR cartridge]

This cartridge produces double emulsion droplets, which can be used as compartments for high-throughput screening and identification of the target. Encapsulate millions of molecules or small cells (up to 6µmdiameter) with Xdrop.

  • Run 8 samples simultaneously or individually
  • 40 minutes of droplet generation time
  • Produce 4-10 million droplets per lane
  • Contamination-free workflow

To get more information or to place an order, please contact us.

load dPCR

The double emulsions [dPCR] cartridge loading.

DEdroplets(2)

Double emulsion droplets produced using the Xdrop instrument and the double emulsions cartridge.

Single emulsions cartridge

[Called dMDA cartridge]

This cartridge produces single emulsion droplets, which can be used as compartments for single molecule amplification.

  • Run 8 samples simultaneously or individually
  • 40 seconds of droplet generation time
  • Produce > 50,000 droplets per sample and per run
  • Contmination-free workflow

load dMDA

The single emulsions [dMDA] cartridge loading.

SEdroplets

Single emulsion droplets produced using the Xdrop instrument and the single emulsions cartridge.

Reagents

Samplix has a full range of enzymes, buffers, surfactant, positive controls etc. specifically developed and optimized for use in the Xdrop system. Please find full list of products and reagents below.
