What is a PyroMark instrument method or instrument code?
FAQ ID -2941

An instrument method or instrument code encodes the individual pulse time settings of specific cartridge lot batch. These pulse time settings change when e.g. a new batch of capillaries is used with slight variations in the needle diameter. For larger diameters, the pulse settings are lowered to dispense the correct volume of liquid. In addition, the viscosity of enzyme and substrate mixes can change which influences dispensing volumes.

The individual instrument method/code number is printed on the cartridge label. The corresponding methods/code settings can be downloaded as a file from the respective instrument webpage and opened in the PyroMark application software.
