Araya™ is an inline fluorescence detection instrument that includes fully automated Array Tape™ in-feed, bar code reading, fluorescence detection, and Array Tape out-feed. The typical scan time of a 384-well array in Array Tape is 28 seconds. One reel of 200 arrays in 384 format can be read out in approximately 2 hours.
PMT-Based reading modes
The Araya is a PMT-based system supporting detection of three different dyes in a single well. Each dye is read in a single back and forth pass over a column in the Array Tape.
Data logs output
All run information is logged in XML files. The log files can be queried for errors, sample location, and dispense parameters while the run is in process. Configurable XML output LIMS summary files are also available. For information on data management and scoring, go to the Intellics™ Software overview.
