RainDrop™ Digital PCR
OptiGene Genie II
Built on RainDance’s patented and proven RainStorm™ picodroplet technology, the RainDrop™ Digital PCR System generates up to 10 million picoliter-sized droplets per lane.
Since each droplet encapsulates a single molecule, researchers can quickly determine the absolute number of droplets containing specific target DNA and compare that to the number of droplets with background wild-type DNA. The RainDrop System also shifts the current digital PCR (dPCR) paradigm from a single-colour-per-marker approach to a two colour with varying probe intensity method that is capable of multiplexing up to 10 markers.

Genie® II is a compact, lightweight and robust instrument suitable for use in the field or laboratory. It was specifically designed to run any isothermal amplification method that employs target detection by fluorescence measurement. The device has two heating blocks, each of which takes a single 8-microtube strip that was specially designed for the instrument. The tubes feature locking caps that do not open after a run, so preventing any contamination. The blocks can be controlled independently or run together for processing up to 16-samples. The instrument boasts low power requirements and includes a rechargeable Lithium-Polymer battery that can keep it running for a full working day.
Genie® II is controlled from a large TFT LCD display with resistive touch screen that can be operated while wearing protective gloves. From this interface the instrument can be set to run any thermal profile required for isothermal amplification. Real-time temperature and fluorescence data is displayed graphically and in real-time during a run and all of the data is held in the instrument’s large internal FLASH memory. This data is permanently stored and can be reviewed on the high-resolution display at any time after the run has finished or uploaded to a PC via a USB link.
