Stilla Technologies Ruby Chip for Naica Digital PCR System

Stilla Technologies has introduced the Ruby chip, a 'load-and-go' consumable for digital PCR that is optimized for the Naica system. The Ruby chip has adjustable throughput to process up to 96 samples in under three hours with standard SBS plate spacing that is compatible with multichannel pipettes for manual loading as well integration with common liquid handling robots. The chip comes ready to use and preloaded with sealed chambers, enabling the addition of sample mix in a single, foil-piercing pipetting step to eliminate cross contamination and reduce handling.
