SmartChip Real-Time PCR


SmartChip Real-Time PCR System

The SmartChip Real-Time PCR System offers high throughput genotyping and gene expression analysis in SmartChips which contain 5,184 individual nanowells. Samples and assays are dispensed into the SmartChip using the MutliSample NanoDispenser (MSND). Once the samples and assays have been dispensed, the SmartChip can be thermal cycled in the SmartChip Real-Time PCR Cycler.

SmartChip Real-Time PCR Advantages

High Throughput

  • Nano scale volumes are more efficient than 96 or 384 well plates, and do not require pre-amplification


  • Run up to 5,184 reactions in under two hours


  • Dispense your own assays in the lab or have chips pre-printed – take control of your entire worfklow

MultiSample NanoDispenser (MSND)

Using the MultiSample NanoDispenser (MSND) you can dispense your samples or assays into the SmartChip. With its capability to precisely deliver 100nL volumes you can always be sure that none of your precious samples or reagents will ever go to waste.

Many Flexible Configurations

With many different preprogrammed dispense configurations on the MSND printing your assays in your lab has never been easier. Print in your lab in about 30 minutes and begin your experiments today, no need to wait.

Smart Volume for Optimal Assays

The nanoscale wells of the SmartChip are perfectly optimized to provide volumes 100 times more efficiently than standard 384 well plates while simultaneously requiring no additional preamplification. The assay and sample dispensed into each well are a single gene expression or genotyping run with a reproducibility higher than other nanoscale volume instruments.


This system provides you with a quick and efficient gene expression or genotyping platform. In this recording, we highlight the SmartChip Real-Time PCR System’s features, including how the system can take you from discovery to screening.

SmartChip Bacterial Vaginosis Panel

Quick and accurate identification of the microorganisms in Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) samples is essential for Women¹s Health Research Laboratories and the 21.2 million women BV affects nationally. While BV's causes are unknown, microorganism identification can lead to a deeper understanding of the disease. The WaferGen BV Panel identifies 19 pathogens by quantitative PCR analysis on the SmartChip Real-Time qPCR System.
