What is the meaning of the abbreviations NDT and CDT and what are the differences?

The PyroMark Q96 MD uses the NDT and CDT to dispense nucleotides, while the Q24 and Q96 ID use cartridges.

NDT means nucleotide dispensing tip. This is the original dispensing tip which is more sensitive to dust but dispenses lower nucleotide volumes and enables longer read length.

CDT means caplillary dispensing tip and is comparable to Q24 and Q96 ID cartridges. They dispense a higher volume but are easier in handling.

The NDT and CDT use two different tip holders which cannot be interchanged
