Title: ASSAY PERFORMANCE SYSTEMS INCLUDING AQUEOUS SAMPLE STABILIZATION
Abstract:
An assay performance system may include modules configured to store aqueous sample plates, conduct droplet generation or emulsification of aqueous samples, and to perform thermocycling and droplet reading functions. One or more samples may be emulsified and stored in an emulsified state for extended times prior to thermocycling. Accordingly, the assay performance system may include material handling systems and methods to accommodate the storage function.
