What types of reaction vessels are required for use in the QIAquant?
The QIAquant 96 is equipped with a 96-well SBS sample block. This makes it suitable for the use of 0.2 ml individual tubes, 8-well strips, and 96-well microtiter plates.
The QIAquant 384 is equipped with a 384-well SBS sample block. This makes it only suitable for the use of commercially available PCR plates with 384 wells.
For highest signal intensity, we recommend the use of white tubes and plates with optically clear lid/seal. These and other consumables can be ordered from QIAGEN.
