Only three reagents needed
Only three reagents are needed to operate Quintus (Diluent, Lyse* and Stopper), with up to 24-month shelf-life. This greatly simplifies handling and logistics and helps reduce running costs.
The three reagents comprise a locked system with barcode entry. Simply scan the barcode on the reagent container and Quintus stores key information such as lot number, open date and expiry. This secures quality of results by preventing the use of non-Quintus solutions. To further simplify operation, each reagent is color-coded and its current status is always viewable by touching the lower section of the display.
*For safety and environmental reasons, the lysing reagent is cyanide-free.
