Managing instrument methods for your PyroMark Q96 MD
  • Main Image Navi
The PyroMark Q96 MD dispenses the correct volume of enzyme mix, substrate mix, and nucleotides using variable pulse times and dispensing pressures. Settings for pulse times and dispensing pressure are specific for each lot of PyroMark Q96 dispensing tips (PyroMark Q96 HS Nucleotide Tips (NDT), PyroMark Q96 HS Reagent Tips (RDT), and PyroMark Q96 HS Capillary Tips (CDT)) and need to be updated in the PyroMark Q96 MD Software or in the PyroMark CpG Software under "Instrument Parameters".

Dispensing pressures and pulse time settings must be checked and, if necessary, updated every time a dispensing tip from a new lot number is used.

Managing instrument parameters in PyroMark Q96 MD Software
  1. Click “Instrument” and then “Parameters” to reveal the list of installed instrument parameter files.
  2. Right-click an existing instrument parameter file from the list and click “Duplicate”.
  3. Enter a new file name. To easily identify the new instrument parameter file, name the file with the lot numbers of the dispensing tips to be used (e.g., “Instrument parameters 630088/450009” for NDTs and RDTs or “Instrument parameters 740001/450009” for CDTs and RDTs).
  4. In the following tables, find the dispensing pressure and pulse time settings that correspond to the lot number printed on the label of the dispensing tips to be used.
  5. Enter the dispensing pressures and pulse times in the corresponding fields of the “Instrument Parameters” dialog box.
  6. Save the new instrument parameter file.
  7. When creating a new Run Setup, select this new instrument parameter file (e.g., “Instrument parameters 630088/450009”) from the list of instrument parameter files.

Managing instrument parameters in PyroMark CpG Software
  1. Refer to the table below to determine the correct instrument parameter file for the exact combination of dispensing tips to be used. The lot number is printed on the label of the dispensing tips.
  2. Access the list of downloadable instrument method files below or under the "Resources" at the PyroMark Q96 MD catalog page.
  3. Click the instrument parameter file that corresponds to the combination of dispensing tips to be used.
  4. Unzip the downloaded file and save the instrument parameter file to the operator computer:
    If using PyroMark CpG SW Version 1.0.9 or lower, save the file to
    C:\Program Files\Biotage\Pyro Q-CpG 1.0.X\Instrument Parameters
    (Where "X" represents the installed version of PyroMark CpG Software)
    If using PyroMark CpG SW Version 1.0.11 or higher, save the file to
    C:\Program Files\Qiagen\PyroMark CpG Software 1.0.11.14\Instrument parameters
  5. The downloaded file will now appear in the list of available instrument parameter files and can be selected when creating a new Run Setup.
