Technology

Our revolutionary integrated fluidic circuits (IFCs) empower life science research by automating molecular biology in nanoliter volumes. This means using less sample and reagent, and a single microfluidic device, to achieve the high-quality, consistent results your work depends on. 

Workflow

1

Prime

Prime the Access Array IFC to prepare it for sample transfer.

2

Transfer

Pipet samples and primer sets into the designated inlets on the IFC.

3

Load

Samples and assays primers are automatically combined in the AX Controller.

4

Amplify

Insert the IFC in the FC1™ cycler for target amplification.

5

Harvest

Place the IFC in the IFC Controller AX to collect and purify the amplified products for clonal amplification and sequencing.
