The AGILE R100 reader (not shown) houses the majority of the system’s electronic components while the cartridge holds the biosensor chip. Two Cartridge types are available for the R100.
- Direct Connect Cartridge holds the biosensor chip and biological materials, and connects directly to the AGILE R100 reader for compact use. It’s easily separated from the reader post-experiment for easy decontamination with standard protocols. It includes a clear cover to reduce liquid evaporation.
- Cable Connect Cartridge offers the same benefits, but attaches to the reader via a one-meter-long high density cable. This enables additional use of the cartridge in a wide range of experimental settings (ex: with a temperature controlled incubator or in a biosafety cabinet) that may otherwise damage the reader. The Cable Connect cartridge is also easily decontaminated post-experiment with standard protocols.
Both cartridges are compatible with the AGILE R100 reader. While one is included with the specific AGILE R100 system you purchase, additional cartridges are available as accessories.
