RainDrop Digital PCR System

Product Image
Product Description

Capable of generating more than a billion reactions in a single day, the new RainDrop™ Digital PCR System surpasses all existing technologies and establishes a new performance standard in sensitivity, quantitation, and multiplexing. Based on RainDance’s proven picodroplet platform, the RainDrop System transforms the performance of molecular assays by enabling digital answers across a number of important applications including low-frequency tumor allele detection, gene expression, copy number variation, and SNP measurement.

Innovative Design
A new gold standard in sensitivity is only possible through the careful consideration of every aspect of the system. The RainDrop System offers a number of innovative droplet-based design advantages.

  • Automated delivery of filtered oil from sealed on-board reservoirs eliminates any contamination risks from the environment or pipetting
  • Real-time closed-loop control of droplet creation ensures uniformity both within and across runs
  • Automated filling of PCR tubes with emulsion avoids possible losses with manual pipetting techniques
  • All wetted surfaces are single use, eliminating the potential for any carryover of droplets from one sample to the next that can occur with reusable fluid path approaches
  • Sealed amplicon containment completely eliminates catastrophic contamination issues from spills and other problems with pierced foil designs
  • Logical channel-to-channel workflow, integrated bar-coding and sample tracking through the RainDrop software eliminate the risk of experiment disasters caused by simple reformatting mistakes in sample handling.
