Can the QIAcube Connect heater/shaker be used independently from protocol runs?
Yes. The heated shaker on the QIAcube Connect can be operated independently if the QIAcube Connect is not performing a protocol run. For instructions on how to operate the shaker, refer to the QIAcube Connect User Manual, chapter 5 'Operating Procedures', section 5.8, 'Operating the shaker'.
The shaker can be used to heat and shake samples simultaneously, shake samples without heating, or heat samples without shaking.
