  • Design is optimized for reducing the time for gene amplification.

  • Sample is loaded in flat and wide chamber so that heat is efficiently delivered to the sample.

  • Well volume is 10μl only, which helps fast heating and cooling.

  • Bottom surface of chip is made of thin film for efficient heat transfer.

  • Contamination free and transformation free.

  • Options are available for thermal cycling and real-time analysis.

contamination free

  • Rapi:chip™ was developed from the understanding of the challenges in routine PCR.  

  • We found the protocols duration could be dramatically reduced when efficient heat transfer is made during the thermal cycling process.

  • By designing a unique 3-dimensional polymer chip where the bottom surface is made of a thin film and precisely bonded with a polymer body, ultra-fast thermal cycling became possible.

  • Rapi:chip™ is supplied in two formats. The QPCR version of the chip has 10 wells and the top of each well is open for real-time fluorescence measurement.

  • Rapi:chip/16™ is a version which can accommodate 16 samples and is ideal for amplification of standard PCR. It does not have the capability for analysis of a fluorescence signal.


  • The wings on either side of the chip are used for easy handling with fingers or tweezers.

  • The Well numbers are printed on the upper surface of the chip for easy identification.

  • Pipette tips fit in the apertures so that sample and reagent can be loaded or collected easily.



    • STEP 1.  Prepare sample according to suggested protocol (10μl).

    • STEP 2.  Using micropipette, aspirate prepared sample mixture (10μl).

    • STEP 3.  Place pipette tip into the inlet hole of Rapi:chip™ and dispense whole volume of aspirated sample.

    • STEP 4.  Seal entire holes using enclosed sealing tape. Scrub the surface of sealed area to secure sealing.
