The RainDance RDT 1000 is a fully automated Low-to-Medium-Throughput Sequencing System that represents a true break-through for accelerating the targeted sequencing of the human genome. As a center piece to RainDance’s target enrichment sequencing solution systems, the RDT 1000 plays a critical role in an efficient targeted sequencing workflow. The RDT 1000 incorporates RainDance’s pico-droplet-based technology, which uses the gold-standard single-plex PCR, to amplify hundreds to thousands of genomic loci with high specificity and uniformity. The system is ideal for small to medium size NGS projects with the capability of running up to 10 samples per day and works with all next generation sequencers.
The RDT 1000 produces picoliter-volume droplets at the rate of 10 million discrete PCR reactions per hour.
