Is it possible to run the LightCycler® selftest after insertion of the carousel carrying the capillaries?
FAQ ID -1514

Although a selftest can be run with an inserted carousel, we strictly recommend to run the selftest without the carousel filled with analytical samples. During the selftest the LightCycler® instrument is checked for optimal heating and cooling performance so that anything inside the thermal chamber will be subject to a brief temperature variation. In theory, these short heating/cooling steps could have an influence on the artus® kit performance.
