I just received my Open qPCR. How do I set it up?

Once you receive your Open qPCR, you can do the following: 

  1. Connect to the Open qPCR from any compatible computer using USB, Ethernet, or Wifi and create an account.
  2. Calibrate the Open qPCR with the fluorescein calibrator (for single channel units) or FAM/HEX calibrator set (for dual channel units) and compatible 0.1 mL, optically clear PCR tube and cap strips.
    Here's a video link for a Dual Channel Open qPCR optical calibration.
  3. Run an experiment using the Create an Experiment or Run a Test Kit option.
    Here's a video link for Creating a New Experiment on the Open qPCR.
