Rapi:chip™ Microfluidic Chips

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

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

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

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

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

efficient

  • 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.

multiple formats

  • 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.

easy to use

  • Contamination free and transformation free.

  • 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 samples and reagents can be loaded or collected easily.

How do I load the samples? 

How to load the samples:

 

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

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

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

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