It can be used for up to 2 weeks after inserted. Don’t forget to also order chips!

FAQ – Standard Cartridge

How many oligos can be synthesized with one reagent cartridge?

One reagent cartridge holds material for 200 bases. For example you can print:

  • Six oligos with 30 bases
  • Eight oligos with 25 bases
  • Ten oligos with 20 bases
  • Two 80mer oligos and two 20mer oligos until 200 bases are used up

Basically, you can print oligos with different length until the reagents for 200 bases are finished.

What is the shelf life and storage conditions of reagent cartridges/fluidic chips?

The shelf life of cartridges is one year minimum, and we recommend reagent cartridges be stored at 4°C. After inserted into Kilobaser, the reagent cartridges can be used for up to two weeks or until 200 bases are synthesized. The cartridge should remain inserted into Kilobaser until it is used up.

The fluidic chips should be stored in the dark at room temperature.

How much waste is generated per run?

The total liquid volume in each cartridge is just roughly 18mL. The volume of all microfluidic channels in the microfluidic chip is 4µl and thus Kilobaser produces 50% less hazardous waste than usual column-based synthesizers. Per base, the Kilobaser needs 75µL of total liquid volume which will eventually turn to waste. The waste is constantly pumped back into a waste bottle in the cartridge and can be long term stored in there.

Since the cartridge contains hazardous chemicals, please ensure cartridges are removed in accordance with current regulations in your country.
