How to perform the vacuum prep tool function test?
Fill a PCR plate with 80– 100 µl of high-purity water. Apply vacuum pressure to the vacuum prep tool. Lower the vacuum prep tool to the PCR plate and wait for 10 seconds. If the wells are not empty in 10 seconds, the vacuum system needs to be checked. Check the integrity of the waste bottle cap. Replace the inline filter if dirty or wet. Replace the vacuum probes after they are used 100 times.
